Personality of the Week
Ary dos Santos

7 December, 1937 - 18 January, 1984


José Carlos Pereira Ary dos Santos became known to the general public as one of the most talented poets of his generation. He contributed to the renewal of Portuguese light music by way of his poems, which he considered his way of addressing the people – as being a poet means selecting the words that the people deserves to hear.
