Mário Reis (Mário da Silveira Meirelles Reis - 12/31/1907 Rio de Janeiro - 10/5/1981 Rio de Janeiro) was one of the best interpreters of Brazilian popular music. Active and successful from 1928 to 1936, he helped popularize the (at the time) unknown and genial composers of the Carioca hills throughout Brazil, with his 161 interpretations recorded on 82 78 rpms.
From a middle-class family, he was already a violão student when he knew Sinhô (the King of Samba). Reis had an original style that was lighthearted, jumpy, and humorous, contrasting with the hegemonic bel-canto school of those days.
