Today in Latin American history, Brazilian singer Raul Seixas known as the “Father of Brazilian Rock” died in 1989.

Seixas had recorded over 21 albums during his 26-year career.

Many songs in Gita were co-written with his frequent collaborator, then fellow mystic, and future worldwide bestselling author Paulo Coelho.

Every year on Seixas’ birthday, legions of fans, including hundreds of impersonators (many even changing their last name to Seixas as a sign of idolatry), throw a parade in his honor in downtown São Paulo.
