Bahian singer-songwriter Caetano Veloso is one of the most important musicians in Brazilian popular music – and many consider him one of the best songwriters of the 20th century. He began his career in the 60’s interpreting bossa nova songs and went on to be a leader of the counterculture’s Tropicália movement. Today, Veloso has over fifty albums available and collaborations in film soundtracks including Pedro Almodovar’s “Cable con Ella” and Julie Taymor’s “Frida.” He has won numerous awards – including 13 Latin and 2 American Grammys – as well as two titles at the 24th Brazilian Music Awards. An outspoken political activist, Veloso is a major musical, social, and cultural force in Brazil and an influential figure to musicians all over the world.
Over an illustrious five-decade career, the father of Tropicália has proved himself as both a piercing social commentator and a romantic balladeer. We’re thrilled to join our friends at BAM in welcoming him back to Brooklyn for this unmissable two-night run!
