Composer, singer and performer. He's the leading figure of the Vanguarda Paulista movement from the late seventies. Barnabé uses principles of composition from dodecaphonism and atonalism to transform samba in its most advanced version to date. His records Clara Crocodilo (1979) and Tubaroes Voadores (1983) are considered amongst the most important in MPB history. Author of a vast and varied opus comprising operas, movie scores, orchestral works, samba and even pop music, Barnabé is experiencing a period of exceptional renovation that promises exciting results.
