Caetano Veloso


Brazil’s premiere trad-experimentalist is still rocking out at age 72. Released earlier this year, Abraçaço (Big Hug) is the final installment in a trilogy of albums the Tropicalia legend recorded with the young rock trio with whom he’ll perform. Veloso sings about sex, politics, and history in raw, stripped-down arrangements. But old-school Brazil still gets its due in songs like “A Bossa Nova é Foda,” i.e., “Bossa Nova is the shit.”
