Gilberto Gil Sun 11/04/12
GRAMMY-winning Brazilian Superstar - Rialto Series
Prolific singer, composer, guitarist, and Brazilian Minster of Culture Gilberto Gil's career speaks for itself: 50 albums, with 12 gold and 5 platinum. Widely recognized as a world music pioneer, Gil fuses samba, salsa, and bossa nova with rock and folk into baião, a northeastern Brazilian style that blends classic European folk music with Asian, African and Indian sounds. Baião expresses northeastern lifestyle; it is the soundtrack for forró, the June Catholic festivities and popular balls. This is a Rialto Series performance. Check them out on You Tube.
