Carlos Alberto Rangel de Andrade (born in Beira, Mozambique), better known as Mingo Rangel, is a Mozambican musician, singer, composer and writer.
Born in Mozambique in the city of Beira, Rangel started his classical guitar studies early with professor Alfredo Costa.
He has held a professional musician's licence since 1979, when he was performing compulsory military service at the Military Hospital in Estrela (Lisbon, Portugal).
Rangel plays guitar with Portuguese musical group Trio Odemira. He also regularly works with London-based jazz group Grand Union Orchestra, with whom he has performed in Holland, Ireland, France and the United Kingdom.
It was with Grand Union Orchestra that Rangel recorded an album at the famous Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, participated in the Setúbal Music Festival, and played at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
Rangel provided music for the 1996 film Mississe: a story of love, lust and black magic set in a small village in southern Mozambique.
Some of Rangel’s hits have been recorded and performed by renowned names in the Portuguese-speaking music scene, such as Paulo de Carvalho, Dany Silva, Maria João Silveira, Tito Paris, and João Afonso.
Rangel currently teaches classical guitar.
He wrote the play Só Nos Dois, which featured actress Eugenia Bettencourt.
