Caetano Veloso
with Moreno Zeca Tom Veloso

For over 35 years, Grammy Award-winner Caetano Veloso has been a major musical, social, and cultural force in Brazil. The New York Times calls him “one of the greatest songwriters of the century.” Veloso’s latest project is a collaboration with his sons: Moreno, Zeca, and Tom. This legendary lineage performs an intimate, acoustic concert full of their favorite songs like “Um Canto de Afoxé Para o Bloco do Ilê,” and your favorite songs of Veloso’s like “Cucurrucucu Paloma,” “Sozinho,” and more.Veloso first became known for his participation in the Brazilian musical movement Tropicalismo, which encompassed theatre, poetry, and music in the 1960s.Veloso is excited to share the stage with his sons, saying, “It’s an intimate concert, born from my will of being happy. Having kids was the most important thing that happened in my adulthood.”In 1969 the Brazilian government viewed Veloso’s music and political action as threatening, and he was arrested, along with fellow musician Gilberto Gil. The two were exiled from Brazil, and went to London, where they lived for two years.
