Music in Letters

This Monday (9), at 9 pm, at Bona, in São Paulo, the talk show “Assessora de Trouble!”, with the experienced Gilda Mattoso.

Gilda Mattoso, 70, from Niteroi, has been a showbiz press officer for 30 years and has a lot of story to tell. Delicious, exciting and very fun, the “stories” involve several celebrities.

Mattoso was the last companion of Vinicius de Moraes (1913-1980). She lived in Europe for five years as a student and in London she worked in a very fancy shop on Bond Street, where she catered to film stars such as Ava Gardner and Fred Astaire, among others. Then she started working in the music business with Italian producer Franco Fontana, who took most of the Brazilian artists to Europe.

Encouraged by stylist Ronaldo Fraga, who heard her telling stories during a dinner in Rio de Janeiro, Gilda premiered this show in June 2019 at the Grande Hotel Ronaldo Fraga, in Belo Horizonte. After that, there were presentations, always packed, in Niterói and Rio de Janeiro. However, with the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, the presentations were interrupted, but now they are resumed with confirmed dates for the cities of São Paulo, Belo Horizonte and Rio de Janeiro.

Gilda Mattoso’s life and her “stories” generated the eponymous book “Assessora de Encrenca!”, which has a preface by Caetano Veloso, as well as a text on the back cover by filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar, which defines it perfectly: “Few people are so positive as Gilda Mattoso, with so much determination to live, so much optimism and so much desire to share her happiness. I met her through Caetano, but from the first day I had the impression that I had known her forever”.

Have a good time!
