His biggest hits were his compositions "Tá Fartando Coisa em Mim," "Retrato de Maria," "João Bobo," "Farinhada," "Casar é Bom" (with Meira Guimarães), and "Me Leva," recorded in duo with Carmélia Alves, representing her first baião in a long series that would yield her the title of Queen of Baião in the '50s, given by the King of Baião, Luís Gonzaga.

Curi started his professional career as a crooner for the Orquestra Zacarias at the Copacabana Palace Hotel (Rio de Janeiro). In 1947, he recorded his first album for Continental. Heavily influenced by the French chanson, in 1952 Curi adopted a humoresque line and a Northeastern repertory. In 1956 and 1957, he toured Europe, performing in Portugal where he was considered the best interpreter of Brazilian music.

In 1993, hosted a TV show (Show da Manchete) and starred in the theater show A França e Quinze Saudades, in which he interpreted French songs. His last solo album, Douce France, consisted of that show's songs. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
