A shimmering homage to the experimental Brazilian Tropicalismo musician.

Together with contemporaries like Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa and Tom Zé, singer and musician Caetano Veloso created the artistic movement known as Tropicalismo in the mid-sixties.

Characterised by its mix of traditional Brazilian music with foreign sonics including African rhythms and rock and roll, Veloso and Gil were driven into exile in the late ’60s by Brazil’s military dictatorship who perceived their music as politically threatening.

They continued to develop the Tropicalismo sound abroad, returning to Rio in the ’70s; shortly thereafter the movement gained international recognition, influencing musicians like David Byrne with its cross-cultural fusion of styles.

This week French duo Souleance aka Fulgeance and DJ Soulist, who likewise draw from sounds far and wide, take you through the prolific world of Brazilian maestro Caetano Veloso.
