Renato Baccarat is from São Paulo, Brazil. His “alternative” music entirely sung in Portuguese offers a solar, bittersweet sound tinged with influences ranging from Chico Buarque to Rodrigo Amarante via Tom Zé.
After MINIATURA! (2012) and Todo Mundo é Feio (2016), Renato returns with a third album recorded entirely in São Paulo and produced by Guilherme Kastrup (known for his work with Tom Zé, Bixiga 70, Chico Cesar, Gal Costa, Elza Soares Latin Grammy Award 2016).
Deselegância Discreta (fall 2019) is far more closely related to contemporary Brazil than his previous albums. In the great tradition of Brazilian Popular Music that has always found its place between art and society, Renato Baccarat offers through his lyrics a modern reading of our times.
