“One of the greatest songwriters of the century” (The New York Times), Brazilian legend Caetano Veloso returns to NJPAC. He’ll sing from his brilliant album Meu Coco, which The Washington Post calls “unsurprisingly gorgeous, adventurously polyrhythmic.”
Caetano famously co-founded the provocative Tropicália movement of the 1960s, alongside artists including Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Tom Zé and his sister Maria Bethânia. Arrested by Brazil’s military dictatorship and exiled for so-called subversion, Caetano never stopped truth-telling through music. He continues to be a major artistic, social and cultural force in his home country and around the world.
