  3. Caetano Veloso performs Meu Coco


Brazilian superstar Caetano Veloso’s Meu Coco in concert.
Winner of 13 Latin Grammys and two Grammy Awards in the “Best World Music Album” category, Caetano Veloso is considered one of the best singer-songwriters of the 20th century. Internationally acclaimed as an icon like Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Veloso is one of the most important musicians in Brazilian Popular Music (MPB).

Among the most globally influential and beloved artists to emerge from Brazil, Veloso’s musical career began in the 1960s when he famously co-founded the Tropicália movement alongside artists Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, and Tom Zé, permanently altering the course of popular music. Drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as The Beatles, concrete poetry, the French Dadaists, and Brazilian modernist poets, Veloso continues to be a major artistic and social cultural force for his home country and around the world.

Named after his current album Meu Coco, this unforgettable night will draw from that album, in addition to celebrated hits from throughout Caetano’s career.

Concert performed in Portuguese.

“It’s been nine years since I released an album of new songs. At the end of 2019, I felt a strong desire to record new material on my own. It all started with a beat on the guitar that seemed to outline something that (if performed as I dreamed) would sound original to any audience anywhere in the world.”
– Caetano Veloso
