Baden Powell de Aquino, better known simply as Baden Powell (August 6, 1937– September 26, 2000), was one of the most prominent and celebrated Brazilian guitarists and guitar composers of his time. He combined classical techniques with popular harmony and swing, and performed in many styles, including bossa nova, samba, Brazilian jazz, Latin jazz and Brazilian popular music.
