Bio

Tião Carreiro & Pardinho (also known as Tião Carreiro e Pardinho) is a Brazilian sertanejo musical duo. Tião Carreiro (real name: José Dias Nunes), born in a farm in the outskirts of Araçatuba city, in the Brazilian state of São Paulo, started to lear how to play the acoustic guitar at a very young age.Later, only 13, he went to work in the Giglio Circus, where he made a music pair with his cousin Waldomiro.The circus owner encouraged Tião to learn the viola caipira (a kind of steel ten-string acoustic guitar).Tião Carreiro played along with various other violeiros (viola caipira players that create música caipira or Brazilian country music). He reached fame with Pardinho (real name: Antônio Henrique de Lima), consolidating the music double as Tião Carreiro e Pardinho.Alongside Pardinho, Tião Carreiro is credited as the inventor of the Pagode (not to be confused with the Pagode style of Samba), the rural Pagode (Pagode Caipira).
