Veloso and trio will perform original songs from his most recent album, the Latin Grammy Award–winning Abraçaço, which Nonesuch released in the US earlier this year. Abraçaço is the final installment of a musical trilogy (including 2007’s and 2009’s zii e zie) with Banda Cê, a trio of young Brazilian indie rock musicians.

Grammy Award-winning singer/composer/guitarist/writer/political activist Caetano Veloso is among the most influential and beloved artists to emerge from Brazil, where he began his musical career in the 1960s. He has over 50 recordings to his credit, including 14 on Nonesuch. Absorbing musical and aesthetic ideas from sources as diverse as The Beatles, concrete poetry, the French Dadaists, and the Brazilian modernist poets of the 1920s, Veloso—together with Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Tom Zé, his sister Maria Bethânia, and a number of other poets and intellectuals—founded the Tropicália movement and permanently altered the course of his country’s popular music.
