Chiquinha Gonzaga (1847-1935) was a Brazilian composer, pianist and conductor. ***Born in Rio de Janeiro, from a mulatto mother and a wealthy white father. She fought for the end of slavery in Brazil. Gonzaga received an education that would ordinarily have led her to be a “sinhazinha”, a respectful officer's daughter. She learned how to read, write, and do math, but also music, especially how to play the piano, a distinctive mark of a real lady.
