Carlinhos Vaz was born on the Bom Sucesso Ranch of José Vaz Sobrinho in Minas Gerais, Brazil. He studied at the Technological Institute of Minas Gerais and then came to the United States in 1974.  As a child, Carlinhos Vaz demonstrated through his natural musicality, his passion for Brazilian Folk and Brazilian Popular Music (MPB) and at 39, began composing his own music. Vaz has long been a figure in local Brazilian music in Boston, as both a generous patron to burgeoning local artists, as well as pursuing music himself.

He has recorded with Jamelo da Mangueira, Morais Moreira, Genival Lacerda, and one of the great composers who worked with Milton Nascimento, Celso Adolfo and Carlos Rocha, who ultimately inspired Vaz to play and write music.

Carlos Vaz now presents a retrospective of his work over the past twenty years, accompanied by a line-up of deftly talented musicians, to give us an extraordinary highlight into his passion for Brazilian music.
