'Papete' (Jose de Ribamar) was born in 1947, in the city of Bacabal, in the state of Maranhau, Brasil.
The music of Papete was originally released on the independent Discos Marcus Pereira label.
In the 1970's this label released a series of records that focused on the folkloric traditions of Brasil. Especially from the nordeste (northeast).
His 70's LP's had a profound influence on many Brasilian musicians and non musicians.

His 1974, 1978 and 1980 LP's were his best, with anything after that unfortunately becoming too pop-ish.
My favorite is his first 1974 LP: "Berimbau e Percussão".

These last three LP's are now rare and hard to find.
His first 1974 LP has been reissued on CD, but not with the original cover.

"Berimbau e Percussão"
3 vinyl LP set of reissued songs, 1994

with 8 additional songs from his 1989 LP.
