LUIGI CARNEIRO: WE WORK WELL TOGETHER
At the age of 4, Luigi Carneiro, snuck into his parents room trying to find his dad’s Sony tape recorder. He connected the microphone and registered his voice for the first time with a song his grandmother Noemi used to sing to him at bedtime.
Coming from a family of Opera singers and music lovers, Luigi’s first years were serenaded by an eclectic collection of music by many famous last names like Mozart, Verdi, Copland, Bacharach, Jobim, Buarque, Gershwin, Holst, Bach, Lloyd-Webber and many others.
But everything changed on an average Saturday afternoon in 1973, when his dad put an LP on the record player with “an apple in the middle” and two last names changed the kid’s life: Lennon-McCartney.
From that moment on, Luigi’s future goals changed from becoming an airline pilot, bus driver or F1 driver, to becoming a musician and maybe a pop star. As the years went by, his dreams materialized thru the usual path of most music artists: School bands, Music Festivals, bars, night clubs, shopping malls…anywhere that would give him an opportunity to perform his music.
Another major influence in the direction of Luigi Carneiro’s career, was meeting his longtime friend Marcelo Lima in high-school. They played together for only 3 years, loading drums into tiny cars, playing at bars to a crowd of 3 slightly inebriated, tone deaf, but very friendly patrons. More importantly, it built a strong partnership that lasted for over 3 decades.
