(1914 - 1993)

César Guerra-Peixe was an ethnomusicologist, violinist, composer and conductor from Pétropolis, a city in the mountainous state of Rio de Janeiro. His study of frevo, maracatu, caboclinho and carimbós (Afro-Brazilian performance genres practised at Carnival, involving dance, music and ritual re-enactments) influenced his compositional style, particularly in the usage of dance rhythms based on percussion patterns, melodic scales and intervals derived from this music.
