His music has always reflected the political state of his mother country Brazil. So when the “golden years” of Brazil under Juscelino Kubitschek came to an end so too did the exclusive domination of the breezy easy-going style that had so distinctively characterized popular brazillian music. Not to say that this laid-back approach was erased but now alongside it was a new more socially conscious and politically critical form. Edu Lobo is regarded as one of the major figures in this shift, specifically in regards to the genre of bossa nova.
His expansive discography and performances extend to present day times and his career across almost 3 decades has seen him work with almost every big name in Brazilian music and earn him an enviable reputation within Brazil.
