Dado Villa-Lobos (born June 29, 1965 in Brussels, Belgium) is a Brazilian musician, best known as the ex-guitarist of post-punk band Legião Urbana. Along with singer Renato Russo and drummer Marcelo Bonfá, he was one of the founding members of that band, who formed in Brasília in 1982.[1] Villa-Lobos remained with the band through all of their studio albums, until the group dissolved after the 1996 death of Russo.[1] In 2005, he released his first solo album, Jardim de Cáctus.

On May 30, 2012, attended the Tribute to Legião Urbana with Wagner Moura,[2] where they clashed with a fan during the presentation.[3][4][5]

He is the grandnephew of Heitor Villa-Lobos.[6][7]
