Carlos Fuchs is a top-notch musician, a creative pianist, composer and very dear friend. A sound engineer that has my absolute confidence (he is an expert in recording voice and acoustic guitar at the same time, just the way I like !). The music scene in Rio just wouldn't be the same without Carlinhos and Tenda da Raposa!


Carlos Fuchs was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, in an environment surrounded by music. His paternal grandmother, Mira Bank Fuchs, founding violinist of the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, and his father, Robert Fuchs, himself a  brilliant pianist, had a definite influence on his musical formation.
 At the age of seven he started his studies at the piano. For more than 10 years he studied with Saloméa Gandelman, and was also under the tuition of masters like Jacques Klein and Homero de Magalhães.
 Carlos’s passion for music and creative restlessness also led him backstage, to the studios, to the world of secrets behind the recordings, to the place where the magic happens. And so, from the age of 22, music and audio directed his life.
 For more than three decades, Carlos Fuchs has been working in the music scene, whether as an artist, musician, arranger, producer or sound engineer.
 Always with excellent reviews, both in Brazil and abroad, he released five albums as an artist, two in duo with the late singer Ryta de Cássia (Rita Peixoto & Carlos Fuchs - 1992 and Na Minha Cara - 1998) and one in duo with singer and composer Marcos Sacramento (Fossa Nova - 2006), this one bringing exclusively his compositions in partnership with Sacramento.
 His fourth album, Caderno Roubado - 2019, released on CD and LP was exclusively dedicated to his instrumental works and featured the instrumental chamber group Água de Moringa, formed by great musicians from the Rio de Janeiro scene. Os Ventos - 2020, also instrumental, has several strings,  woodwind and brass formations, and has guests such as Gilson Peranzzetta, Eduardo Neves, Rui Alvim and the Saint Petersburg Studio Orchestra, among others.
 As a music producer and sound engineer, Fuchs worked for two decades in his recording studio, the cult Tenda da Raposa, in Rio de Janeiro, where great artists recorded many magical musical moments. Among the countless talents to record there,one can highlight names such as Yamandú Costa, Hamilton de Holanda, João Bosco, Caetano Veloso, Joyce Moreno, Danilo, Dori, Nana and Alice Caymmi, Ivan Lins, Gilson Peranzzetta, Joel Nascimento, Água by Moringa, Carlos Malta, Hermeto Pascoal, Brad Mehldau, Egberto Gismonti, Nelson Sargento, Dona Yvone Lara, Leila Pinheiro, Pedro Luís ea Parede, Zélia Duncan, Lenine, Naná Vasconcelos, MPB4, Quartet in Cy, Boca Livre, Paulo Moura , Moska, Valéria Lobão, Marcos Sacramento, Pedro Miranda, Alfredo del Penho, Nicolas Krassic, Seu Jorge, Olivia Byington, Susana Travassos, Alcione, Zeca Pagodinho, Zé Paulo Becker, Arthur Verocai, Azimuth, Wilson das Neves, Wanda Sá, Roberto Menescal, Toninho Horta, Nivaldo Ornelas, Yuri Popoff, Casuarina, Paulinho da Viola, João Donato, Trio Madeira Brasil, Gabi Amarantos, Mart'nália, Fátima Guedes, Ney Matogrosso, Lucina, Pretinho da Serrinha, Serjão Loroza, Claudio Roditi, Soraya Ravenle, Ithamara Koorax, Selma Reis, Golden Age, Edu Lobo, Sueli Costa, Dominguinhos, Suely Mesquita, Roberta Sá, Otto, Clara Sandroni, Paulo Baiano, Antonio Saraiva, Marcello Gonçalves, Anat Cohen, Marcelo Camelo, Sérgio Ricardo, Marina Lutfi, Equale, Flávio Mendes among many others.

 In 2023, Fuchs is awarded with a  Grammy as recording engineer for the best latin pop album, Pasieros, by Ruben Bládes & Boca Livre.
 Currently based in Portugal, Fuchs has joined other Portuguese sound engineers on a large studio project. A complex of five recording, mixing and mastering studios and production rooms. An audio and production academy, offices, and stock of audio equipment for sale - Arda Core SA. From these studios, ‘Arda Recorders’, which are able to meet any type of demand, from simple recordings to more complex ones, and rooms with a capacity from 2 to 40+ musicians, featuring world class equipment and instruments, such as the magnificent Fazioli F278 concert piano, and the vintage Neve 8068 console, Fuchs will be dedicating himself to the continuation of his career as a producer, recording and mixing engineer, and in fact, all that is encompassed by his one true passion - music!
