One of the members of Som Imaginário, a band organized to back Milton Nascimento in the '70s and which also accompanied Gal Costa and other artists, Tavito had his song "Hey Man" (with Zé Rodrix) successfully recorded by the group on its first LP. In 1973 he became a music producer. In 1979 he recorded his first solo album, Tavito, followed by two others recorded before 1982. His biggest hit was "Casa no Campo" (with Zé Rodrix), recorded by Elis Regina in 1971, and "Rua Ramalhete" (with Ney Azambuja).
