in Brazil, started to get involved in the show business in the 70's when he was
still a teenager in Sao Paulo City, Brazil . Gil began to
work as DJ and set up sound systems for events in Samba Schools,
night clubs, private parties and corporations for the high society
in Sao Paulo. But what Gil really enjoyed was organizing
"Brazilian Shows" and also to perform at the "Mangueira Samba
School" in the city Rio de Janeiro.
Gil is one of the pioneers to introduce South Florida to the
Brazilian Culture by organizing "Brazilian Shows" since his arrival
in Miami in 1989. When there was hardly any Brazilian music to
be heard or dance shows to be seen in "The Magic City", he began to
select and to train talents in playing Samba and performing Brazilian
At the same time he founded his first band named "Samba Brazil", and
put together various group performers to present shows in
"Brazilian Tropicana", "Copacabana" and "Brazil Brazil" in Pompano Beach,
FL, "Ipanema Grill" in Coral Gables, FL, "Tropicana Cruise Lines" in the Port of
Miami. Thanks to Gil, Miami Beach experienced the first "Samba
School Parade", which took place between the years of 1994 to 1997
under his direction. Gil went on to open a dance studio in
South Beach and is still instructing in Brazilian and Latin dances.
