Blessed with an otherworldly voice and an Ellingtonian understanding of harmonic color, Veloso co-led the bossa nova and Tropicália movements of the late 1960s and has since taken on everything from funky samba workouts to ethereal balladry and orchestral pieces. His self-titled 1968 LP was a revolutionary statement, single-handedly launching Tropicália and helping to contemporize Brazilian popular culture in its embrace of international musical influences. Over 40 albums followed in the ensuing decades that have continued to expand the scope of Brazilian music, including his celebrated Carnegie Hall collaboration with David Byrne in 2004 and the 2007 rock-informed Nonesuch release that earned two Latin GRAMMY Awards. 

For for this night, Veloso he brings focus to his musical family in a performance with his sons, presenting a mix of newly composed and classic material from their 2018 Universal Music release Ofertório (Au Vivo). At 76, Caetano Veloso has attained a global stature as a songwriter on par with the likes of John Lennon and Bob Dylan. His influence across musical genres and geographic borders has been vast, yet his riveting concert appearances remain the most important aspect of a legacy still in progress.

“One of Brazil’s, and the world’s, most graceful and innovative songwriters” (NY Times), Caetano Veloso shares new music and gems from his five-decade career in a rare live collaboration with his sons Moreno, Tom, and Zeca Veloso.

He's a sublime and seductive melodist, a curious musician capable of sharp left turns, a historian whose compositions tie past and present together in a way no other pop music figure has managed, at once upholding tradition and transcending it.
