Brazilian Icon Gal Costa in Concert!‏

Gal Costa
October 29, 2009 @ 8PM
Knight Concert Hall

Gal Costa is the archetype of the Brazilian diva. She will perform an elegantly intimate concert that will showcase the immense beauty of the classic Brazilian songs and her lovely voice, accompanied by her guitarist, Romero Lubambo, one of the most celebrated Brazilian jazz musicians today.

Gal Costa was one of the original Quatro Baianos (Four Baianos), along with Caetano Veloso, Maria Bethania and Gilberto Gil. Their style became known as tropicalia, which was at the center of a revolution in Brazil that encompassed all aspects of art, music and culture – a unique fusion of classic Brazilian elements with the energy of psychedelia and US pop. Now, Gal Costa has turned her vocal talents to an exploration of Brazilian jazz and the best elements of classic Brazilian compositions.
