About this image
Gilberto Gil’s illustrious career spans four decades with more than 30 albums released, multiple Grammy Awards, six gold records, four platinum singles, and more than five million albums sold. As a singer, guitarist, composer, and diplomat, Gil plays a key role in the modernization of Brazilian popular music and culture throughout the world. And he takes that role very seriously: from 2003 to 2008 he served as his country’s Minister of Culture. The evening’s program will focus on the jazzy, urbane bossa nova of cosmopolitan Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, paying tribute to seminal recording artist and father of the form, João Gilberto.
