Sebastião do Rojão's career spanned decades, styles and record labels. According to forroemvinil, our hero was born Sebastião Ferreira Costa in 1935 in Garanhus. Through interest garnered from appearances on radio, Sebastião received a contract and his first records were released 1964.

Sebastião is part of a rare breed of soft voiced male forró singers. His vocals remind me of Neil Innes of the Rutles and Jacinto Silva. Like Osvaldo Oliveira, Sebastião recorded ballads and middle of the road material, along with songs in the northeastern style. Alo Alo Garanhuns (Durval Vieira – Sebastião do Rojão) is a lovely tribute to Sebastião's home town.
