Quotes & Highlights
Brazil’s unofficial poet laureate — The New York Times
Brazil’s reigning artistic genius, Caetano Veloso places global pop, jazz and folk styles into a prism and conjures music that is uniquely his own. Blessed with an otherworldly voice and an Ellingtonian understanding of harmonic color, Veloso co-led the bossa nova and Tropicália movements of the late 1960s and has since taken on everything from funky samba workouts to ethereal balladry and orchestral pieces. With 2007’s Nonesuch release, Cê, Veloso used jittery indie rock in order to process the intense emotions surrounding his divorce and the resulting masterwork led to two Latin Grammy Awards. He continues to expand this edgier vision with the 2009 album Zii e Zie. At 67, Veloso’s influence across musical genres and geographic borders has been vast, yet his riveting concert appearances remain the most important aspect of a legacy still in progress.
