For over 35 years, Caetano Veloso has been a major musical, social and cultural force in Brazil, and an influential figure to musicians all over the world. Described as “one of the greatest songwriters of the century” (The New York Times) and “a master in a league of his own” (The Times – UK), Caetano’s collaboration with his three sons – Moreno, Zeca, and Tom – reveals and celebrates the innate and very intimate musical relationship around their extraordinary lineage of songwriting.
The concert will feature many of the family’s favorite songs, such as “Um Canto de Afoxé Para o Bloco do Ilê” and “O Leãozinho” as well as music that is new to them. Caetano plays guitar while Moreno, Zeca, and Tom take turns on various instruments including cello, bass, and keyboard — all singing together in ethereal harmony.
