Not unlike most of the world, Brazil was swept up in the political and cultural turmoil of the late 1960's. Amidst this turmoil came some of the most expressive and experimental music ever created. Whether it was the avant garde of Tom Ze, the bossa nova psychedelia meets Burt Bacharach of cult favorites Os Mutantes to Caetano Veloso's masterful compositions, the movement known as "Tropicalia" spanned the gamut of Brazilian popular music.
The music and artists on this cd spearheaded the movement into overdrive. Legendary guitarist Gilberto Gil and Veloso were the main focal points of the movement, each showing off their amazing skills, as does the equally amazing Gal Costa and the ever-experimental Os Mutantes (Mutants).
It's hard to place the music's impact into words, but "amazing" would do this music, the artists, or the prices they all paid for their overt defiance of Brazil's regime in making their music, little justice. The movement quickly fell apart after Veloso and Gil were exiled to London. Os Mutantes recorded several lps of excellent, but increasingly mainstream, quality, as did Costa. Veloso and Gil continue to amaze to this day, becoming proficeient as movie score and soundtrack producers.
To fully realize the short period (less than 1 year) of recorded brialliance of this movement, this cd is all you need to get you started. Then seek out each artist individually and bask in thir collective brilliances.
An essential recording.

A landmark album in the history of Brazilian Popular Music, which represents the essence of the Tropicalia, a musical movement from the late sixties known for its total stylistic freedom. Traditional Brazilian rhythms are mixed with European pop-rock and Caribbean tunes, and the whole is seasoned with high doses of psychedelic. The album features performances by such great musicians as Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Nara Leão and Os Mutantes. Gal's voice is especially magic in this release, as you can notice in her two tracks, "Baby" and "Mãme Coragem", where she shows her exquisite singing at her best. An absolutely brilliant album.

This is one of the most important albums in Brazilian music history. It started the Tropicália musical movement--a movement that was political and very musical, merging many genres of music together--from bossa nova to samba to rock to Fellini-inspired themes. The movement didn't last long, but had a lasting effect on music, felt even today. One also has to remember what danger these artists (Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Os Mutantes et al) put themselves in to make this music, what with the military dictatorship that was in control in Brazil from 1964 until 1989--Caetano and Gil were even exiled to London for two years, with artists like Gal still recording their songs in Brazil. This is a must-have for any Brazil enthusiast, or anyone who can appreciate a classic musical statement that challenged the thinking of the times.

tudo bem com me

Do yourself, your family, and your friends a favor: Purchase this outstanding album if you are thinking about improving your knowledge of the Tropicalia era in Brazil. The music here is an illustration of what it means and what it takes to create art during a period when government repression of political, religious, and social views have become commonplace...reminds me a bit of today. Check it!

Why did it take 45 years for me to hear this incredible album? Beats me. But I'm glad I finally ran across it. Really glad. This is a solid album from beginning to end. All the traits of a classic. I'm really looking forward to spending time with this album in the future. Suggest you do same.
