Why See Caetano Veloso?
Legendary Brazilian Muso Caetano Veloso
A legend in the truest sense of the word, the instantly recognizable Brazilian musician Caetano Veloso has been shaping his country's history ever since the very beginnings of Tropicalismo, a musical movement that rose as a direct response to the Brazilian military dictatorship of the 1960s. Don't miss the cultural icon on US shores.
Mixing samba and bossa nova with the free-spirited rock and roll aesthetic of the 60s, Veloso was instrumental in Tropicalia, fusing and reviving the traditional music of his heritage with free-wheeling rock. With an outspoken political voice, complex harmonies and rhythms and philosophies shining through his songs, Veloso cuts a charming and relaxed figure on stage, making it all seem effortless.
