José Domingos de Morais
Dominguinhos has had success as a musician, both solo and as a sideman for consecrated artists like Luís Gonzaga, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, and Maria Bethânia.
At six he was already playing his eight-button accordion together with his brothers at fairs and streets of his hometown, Garanhuns (Pernambuco), and neighboring villages and cities.
Several of his songs have been included in cinema soundtracks. In 1997 Dominguinhos wrote the soundtrack of the film O Cangaceiro (Aníbal Massaíni Neto).
