A year after the commemoration of what would have been Luiz Gonzaga’s 100th birthday, the musical Gonzagão – A Lenda ('Gonzagão – The Legend') comes to São Paulo, telling the story of the Rei do Baião, as Gonzaga was known, for his role in promoting and reinventing the highly-influential baião musical style of North-Eastern Brazil.

In contrast to the biopic, Gonzaga – De Pai Para Filho, based on the life of the Pernambucan musician, which was a box office success in 2012, the focus of this musical is not his biography, but rather a more lyrical narrative that leans towards the myth rather than the man.

The show, which last year won a Prêmio Shell – Brazilian theatre award – for best musical, features 40 songs by the artist including some of his biggest hits such as ‘Cintura Fina’, ‘O Xote das Meninas’, ‘Qui Nem Jiló’, ‘Baião’, ‘Pau-de-arara’ and ‘Asa Branca’.
