Occurs every Saturday
From musical revolutionary to international pop star to beloved statesman, Gilberto Gil is a founding member of Brazilís TropicŠlia movement. With several dozen standards to his credit, he has been interpreted by just about every major Brazilian artist of the past four decades. Gil and fellow Bahians Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa radically reinvented Brazilian popular music in the mid-60s by combining Beatlesque psychedelia, art rock, and Brazilís northeastern roots rhythms. For his UW World Series performance, Gil performs music from his latest album, Gilbertos Samba.
