Jose Mauro

José Mauro

Today, very little is known about Jose Mauro and as a result those searching for some kind of insight on the man behind the music must attempt to glean what they can from the music itself. However, despite rumors to the contrary, Jose Mauro is indeed alive and well and living in Brazil. The political turmoil in the late 60's in Brazil from which his music emerged is significant also; recorded during an era of oppressive state censorship, it is the result of steadfast defiance in the face of a crushing military dictatorship. While many musicians of the era fled the country, preferring their prospects in the affluent, liberated USA, rebellious young beatniks like Mauro chose to stay and reflect their anger at the authorities through thinly veiled protest songs.
