NPR’s Jacki Lyden will interview Caetano Veloso this Sunday, April 25, on Morning Edition. If you’re unfamiliar with the Bob Dylan of Brazil this would be a good introduction to one of the founders of the Tropicalismo movement.
Caetano Veloso’s zii e zie, his 41st full-length and winner of a Latin Grammy in 2009 for Best Singer-Songwriter album, should be at your station now and hopefully you’ve had a chance to listen to it. Caetano Veloso has been called “one of the greatest songwriters of the century” so it’s definitely worth your time to check this out.
