Wow... where can I find more Caetano Veloso??,
This review is from: Talk to Her (Audio CD)
Hey, I was as surprised as anyone else to see Caetano pop out of nowhere in this creepy-but-classy Pedro Almodovar film... and his version of "Cucurrucucu Paloma" is as charming and transcendent a performance as you could ever ask for. Okay, so now a bunch of people are wondering which Caetano albums to buy that sound similar in tone to that song. Of the top of my head, I'd recommend acoustically-oriented records such as 1975's "Coisa" and "Joia," and particularly the more recent European concert album, "Omaggio A Federico E Guilietta," which features Caetano playing with pretty much the same ensemble as seen in the film, and has the same subtle cultural spendor. It also features avant-pop cellist Jacques Morelenbaum, who has been Caetano's bandleader for the last decade or so. They're certainly all favorites of mine.

Caitano is one of the biggest stars ever on the world music scene.
He didn't "pop out" of anywhere.

@Cheshire: I'm talking about him in the context of the movie. The characters go to a venue where, without preamble, Caetano appears and sings a delightful set. I'm pretty aware of Veloso's status, having interviewed him, read his autobiography (great book!) and written about him online. He rocks. Glad that you like him, too. #8-)
