Some other famous songs from the duo are "Gotas de Veneno", "Sandália Amarela" and the non-samba "Candongueiro", which brings forward their african roots, with other successes as, e.g., "Meu Apelo", being signed by Wilson alone. Wilson was a guest in many records, and released quite a few of them. Some of his records were released at first to the japanese market and then to Brazil, since Wilson is very prominent in Japan. Brazilian virtuoso Raphael Rabello was a big fan of Wilson, and took part in his records Peso na Balança and Okolofé, both of which are considered up to this day some of the best finished samba albums ever. In March 1997 Wilson Moreira fell victim to a stroke which left him partially imobilized. Fund-raising shows were organized by the samba scene in order to obtain more resources for better treatments to the sambista.
Wilson has since recovered and has already released a record, composing sambas in partnerships. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
