O Cangaceiro is a great film, with great artists and great songs. We can see a young Vanja Orico singing "Sodade Meu Bem Sodade", a composition by Zé do Norte, an extraordinary Brazilian composer. Now we can hear his songs through his son, the singer Toninho Di Lita, who makes another extraordinary performance, singing with his wife Inajara De Tanduí and his group Bando do Galo Doido, with great singers and musicians like Elísio Paschoal(Hermeto Pachoal's brother), Eliane Carneiro, Chaguinha Lima(Siri Atômico Band), Guto(Siri Atômico Band), Teresa Carvalho(Dama de Paus) and Will Tom(Dama de Paus), who sang with John Phillips in a Tour in Brazil. Toninho Di Lita is a great presence on theaters of Rio de Janeiro, singing songs made by his father and a lot of his own compositions. With new musical cloths Toninho Di Lita sings "Sodade Meu Bem Sodade", "Meu Pião", "Mulher Rendeira" and some hits of his own. "Manto Negro" is a beautiful composition who explains about the personality of the death. Toninho is always worried about education so he also makes performances to Universities and to Public Schools. More about him we can see on "www.orkut.com" - Toninho Di Lita. He is very nice with his fans.
