Gilberto Gil

When: Sat., April 4, 8 p.m. 2015

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of Gil to the cultural makeup of Brazil, so why even try. Gil’s voice, guitar playing, and songs are impeccably beautiful, while etched with harsh truths. In this rare solo outing, the 1960s radical who was forced into political exile and later became the Minister of Culture will play a mixture of his own songs as well as those of bossa nova pioneer João Gilberto. This is such a wonderful treat; seriously, we are so lucky to have this man playing here.
