Brazilian legend Caetano Veloso will bring his Banda Cê to Miami for the Abraçaço tour, closing out a phenomenal triology of modern music. Caetano Veloso’s album Abraçaço, which means “big hug” in Portuguese, was released in North America earlier this year, following major accolades and success in South America. It won a Latin Grammy for Best Singer-Songwriter Album, and earned the #1 spot on Rolling Stone Brazil’s Best Albums list. Veloso is among the most influential and beloved artists to emerge from Brazil, where he began his musical career in the 1960s. Absorbing musical and aesthetic ideas from sources as diverse as The Beatles, concrete poetry, the French Dadaists, and the Brazilian modernist poets of the 1920s, Veloso, together with Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Tom Zé, his sister Maria Bethânia and a number of other intellectuals, founded the Tropicália movement and permanently altered the course of his country’s popular music. Presented by the Rhythm Foundation, tickets are $38.50, $48.50, $58.50 and $78.50 and can be purchased online or by phone.
