Son of a Catholic Yugoslavian and an Austrian Jew who sought refuge in the Holocaust in Brazil, Jorge Mautner, now 76, was educated by a black priestess of an African religion who sang samba and candomblé. The amalgam of cultures has borne fruit: he is a musician, writer, philosopher and inventor, an important piece of the Brazilian cultural puzzle. Maracatu Atómico, O Vampiro and Lágrimas Negras are some of his most coveted songs, with versions sung by friends Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, but also by Chico Science & Nação Zumbi and Gal Costa, among others. All together tell a story that is not over yet. (César Nóbrega)
