Two giants of Brazilian music, Gil and Caetano reunite for an intimate acoustic duo performance, continuing a series of musical collaborations, and a friendship that’s weathered revolution, exile and more.
Leading lights of the provocative Tropicalia movement that swept Brazil in the late 1960s, Gil and Caetano went from being two of Brazil’s biggest pop stars to prisoners under house arrest ordered by their country’s military dictatorship, and later exiles living in London, jamming around the city’s underground scene.
50 years on, their intricate guitars and soulful vocals still recall the radical spirit of the time, blending Brazilian and African rhythms with elements of psychedelia, rock and funk.
In a welcome return to London, the duo continue to make music that communicates directly with the heart and soul.
