Tropicalia Poster


‘Tropicalismo’ shook the structures of Brazilian popular music and influenced several generations. Brazil was suffering under a nationalist military regime when Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Tom Zé, Gal Costa, Arnaldo Baptista, Rita Lee, and many others, mixed Brazilian folk traditions with African music and rock and roll. With revealing interviews, rare archival footage and packed with songs from that period, Tropicália gives us a definitive picture of one of the most fascinating musical and artistic periods in Brazilian history.
