If you like Caetano, you may want to check out his son--granted, it
doesn't quite have the depth, but it's definitely intriguing. And if
you like the Norte album, you may like Arto Lindsay. He's part of
the no-wavers and did a lot of skronking in downtown NYC in the early
Eighties with Ambitious Lovers and DNA, but the last three albums
he's made (two for Bar-none, one for Righteous Babe) have been bossa
electronic records which are quite amazing. Especially the two
earlier ones, Noon Chill and Mondo Civilizado--a great blend of
traditional with some Bahia influences and kinky electronica. He
does some of the translation for Veloso's last record.
Another couple of people that may intrigue you are Vinicius
Cantuaria, Veloso's ex-guitarist, who is quite a songwriter in his
own right, and Tom Ze, another exponent of the Tropicalia movement
which Veloso is a part of. As always, Os Mutantes is a great band to
start with, as it contains the genesis of the weird hybrid Brasilian
music that we hear now.
― Mickey Black Eyes, Monday, 23 July 2001 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link
Thanks for the tip, Michaelangelo, about Estrangeiro. I tend to avoid
the compilations, though.
And thanks to Mickey Black Eyes - can I call you Mickey? - for
Mickey mentioned Mutantes. They're being heavily namedropped at the
mo. If you like that, then you have to try Secos e Molhados, a gently
psychedelic band from a similar period (not sure exactly). Their
singer, Ney Matogrosso, has a spectacular voice.
Arto Lindsay is indeed marvellous. I particularly like Prize, but
that's more a question of circumstance than any great critical
Vinicius Cantuaria - thanks I'll have a look for his solo work.
Back to the Caetano question, did he do anything work seeking out in
the sparkly spangly eighties? (those sleeves... I've never been brave

And I'm assuming that you're already familiar with Gilberto Gil and
Milton Nascimento, not to mention Astrud and Joao Gilberto. Have you
heard Bebel Gilberto's album? It's quite interesting as well--
production by Suba, Amon Tobin, Fila Brasilia, and Thievery
Corporation. I'm kind of out of the loop as far as trends go, but I
know there's a huge underground swell of Brasilian-influenced
electronica--Nicola Conte, Tobin, Thievery, Fantastic Plastic
Machine, Da Lata, et al... while it's certainly not traditional
songcraft, some of their work is very cool. Reflecting some of that
futurist instinct of much Brasilian work.
― Momus, Monday, 23 July 2001 00:00 (nineteen years ago) link
Take a look at Brasilia! It's this very chic, ultra-contextless and
yet historically relevant thing. Very hard to explain, but it's kind
of the same way electronica is designed to be ironic and yet free of
I suppose that could be a formalist construct, but I'm not sure how
relevant it is to helping you decide what music to get. Not to turn
this thread into a discussion of J-pop... but people like Shiina
Ringo and Chara, all the way downtown to Kahimi Karie or Takako
Minekawa, Cornelius, et al of the "Shibuya" sound. And all of their
friends, and their friends' friends. Very much this arch, hip thing
that is very Brasil too. Especially the Brasil that Westerners have
stereotyped--take the album covers by Thievery Corporation and its
downtempo brethren etc, it's all very cool and yet ironic, so that
it's removed from ridicule.
Phew, now that I've managed to make this even more confusing, I'm
going to stop. :)
In a way, our (this generation's) legacy might be much more attuned
to collage works--the conflagration of different styles, melting
attitudes. Hopefully our cultural references won't be ridiculed in a
couple of decades, but who knows? Maybe we'll be hip again because
we're so cheesy for trying to be so hip (about cheesy stuff.) I have
faith, though, that some sincerity and longevity will come out of
this, and not as a result of quoting and Rauschenbergin'.
p.s. I'm burning a couple of cds of Brasil/influenced songs for a DJ
friend of mine--and it occurred to me to add some names of electronic
and other artists that might be fun for you to check out.
old school: Marcos Valle, Baden Powell, Bola Sete, Vinicius DeMoraes,
Gato Barbieri, Airto Moreira
new school: Nicola Conte, Truby Trio, Suba, Smoke City, Da Lata,
Ryuichi Sakamoto, Marisa Monte, Carlinhos Brown, Soulstance

Anyway, yeah I just recently purchased Bicho and Joia, and I quite frankly cannot believe how great they are!!!!!
Joia in particular is a fascinating record; a cycle of miniatures which are all really affecting and impeccably arranged. I've always been a fan of Caetano but it may very well be my discovery of this record which catapulted him into genius status. He has an amazing ear for pure sound - knows the way fundamentally simple instrumentation can create perfectly rich sound worlds. He knows what he's doing.
Bicho is totally cool! It's Caetano going funk and it's extremely great! I saw him live last year and He performed "Gente" from Bicho! It was great; he fuckin' rules!

I've also acquired Livro and Joia. The revival of this thread has been great as I have omitted to seek out Cores e Nomes, but shall rectify that asap. I agree with your call, A Nairn, about French music being added to the list. The chanson was the first sentimental music I ever admitted to liking and it works by dint of its being French.
It's funny to re-read Mickey's post on futurism above, after all this time. I wonder if his Blue Eyes had been blinded by Brasilia (Niemeyer and his sexy pavilion?). I'm not sure if the Japanese model quite applies to Brazil, but there is such freshness infused in the Brazilian aesthetic. Certainly not sure if the Thievery Corp is necessarily the answer to all our prayers.

About Todo Caetano — I don't have the box set itself, but I've purchased some individual discs from it on Ebay. The mini-LP style repackaging is nice; some of the discs are remixed/remastered in a way that is usually quite sumptuous but tends to remove the bite from the drums (maybe a compression issue?), especially on the first (1967) and second (1969) eponymous albums. The '67 album also has a couple of tracks out of order.
I would search Muitos Carnivas (jolly & festive), Muito (quiet and pacifying) and of course the great Tropicalia: Panis et Circensis. The compilation I have is Antologia 67/03, which has a lot of great music and non-chronilogical sequencing that doesn't make a whole lot of sense; not a bad sampler, anyway.

I really enjoyed the show. He and his young 3-piece band performed for 1 hour and 45 minutes. They did a mixture of old and new songs. The stage was set up with a big hangglider sitting behind the drummer backlit with soft yellow light. Behind that was a large screen--on some songs they showed black and white footage of the Brazilian coast and it was as if you were hangliding. Another song featured a Havana Cuba streetscape with all the old cars that are still there. For many songs the screen wasn't used. Veloso switched between using one of those circular hollow electric guitars and an acoustic one, or without a guitar. He danced and jumped about and did various theatrical gestures with his hand. He did his 1971 song about his sister Maria Bethania and a bossa/samba-style acoustic cover of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" that ended with a verse about all the lonely people from "Eleanor Rigby." For many songs the band rocked, especially the drummer, like a postpunk meets Fugazi ensemble, except Veloso was singing samba-rock melodies overtop. They had strobe lights flashing on some of the songs. There were lots of 40 something and up Brazilians in the crowd who got more lively for the older material--especially the encores.

Discussion of his band, plus Arto Lindsey joined him for the encores at this show at BAM in NYC
Here's an excerpt of Ben Ratliff's review:
Now 72, Mr. Veloso has been working with this group, Banda Cê, since 2006, through three records and multiple tours. Its members — Mr. Callado, the brilliant guitarist Pedro Sa and the bassist and keyboardist Ricardo Dias Gomes — are all musicians a generation younger. They counteract his eminence. The sound and arrangements of the new songs are small and immediate, skeletal and unsentimental, like a garage band in miniature.
Mr. Veloso seems to crave critical distance, and the band is a new way to help him attain it. With Banda Cê, raw but articulate, he has little risk of coming across as a glib cultural elder statesman. The songs push and soothe and sometimes grate, grounded in old or new sounds, such as the maracatu-like rhythm of “O Império da Lei,” (“The Rule of Law”), inspired by the murders of environmental activists in the Amazon; a kind of long-form, electric-folk minimalism in “Um Comunista,” about the Brazilian Marxist Carlos Marighella; and variations on bossa nova, his aesthetic resting pulse.
The two-hour set’s references to the past tended toward the complicated and contrarian, too, ambiguous exercises in attraction and withdrawal, irony and rebellion. There were “Baby,” from the late ’60s, and “Você Não Entende Nada” (“You Don’t Understand Anything”) and “De Noite Na Cama” (“By Night in Bed”), from the early ’70s. (During that last one, he unbuttoned his shirt all the way, let it hang open an inch or so, then almost immediately began buttoning it up again.)
The risk, perhaps, of leaning so heavily on ambiguity is that Mr. Veloso is undercutting himself, not allowing himself more access to the beauty of some of his old work; he’s not only a provocateur, but also the writer of more single-purpose songs of love, celebration and memory. But he is concentrating on the new, both for its material and for its double-edged sentiment.

So Caetano Veloso released a new live album that features he and his sons called Ofertorio in May 2018 I now see. Sounded good on first listen
― curmudgeon, Saturday, 27 October 2018 03:21 (one year ago) link
Who had the idea of this family Ofertório ?
It's me ! After a concert with Moreno a few years ago, it became a dream to do it with my other two sons. I waited for Tom to grow up a bit with his new band. Then, I talked to Zeca, the only one of them who never made a scene or a studio. It is someone who does things seriously, who never engages lightly and his first answer was no. I did not talk to him again. He did it himself, a few months later: he had thought it over and wanted us to try. Tom and Moreno accepted immediately.
Why this title of Ofertório ?
Originally, it's the title of a 1997 song, which I sang once in public, in a church, for my mother's 90th birthday. I wrote the words as if it were she who said them, today, I sing them by addressing directly to my sons. I also picked up the strongest titles I wrote for each of my sons' mothers. The themes of family and friends are at the heart of our repertoire.

While it didn’t have the edgier songs I saw him do in 2010 w/ a young band, last night was lilting melodies, rhythm, harmonies, and familial love and support. Caetano explaining how certain songs were inspired by his kids, wife, ex-wife, and mother. Plus how he’s an atheist but his kids are religious
