  • Congratulations to all of the Nonesuch Records artists who were nominated for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, announced earlier today by The Recording Academy: Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, Rhiannon Giddens, Caetano Veloso & Gilberto Gil, and John Adams. Together, these artists' Nonesuch releases have garnered a total of six nominations this year. The Grammy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 12, 2017, in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live on CBS.

  • Caetano Veloso and Teresa Cristina have brought their world tour to the US for four shows. The concerts, in which Cristina's opening set features music from her new album and DVD, Canta Cartola, begin with a sold-out show at The Town Hall in NYC tonight, followed by a second night there on Thursday and shows at Symphony Center in Chicago on Sunday and Broward Center in Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday. Veloso and Cristina will bring the music back home to Brazil in November, with newly added shows in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

  • About This Album

    Caetano Veloso’s 2002 two-cd set, Live in Bahia, came at a moment of rare serendipity for Veloso in the US—a period that also brought the first English translation of his long-awaited memoir, Tropical Truth: A Story of Music and Revolution in Brazil, published by Alfred A. Knopf, as well as a major national US tour.

    Released in Brazil as Noites do Norte ao Vivo, Live in Bahia was recorded in July and August of 2001 over the course of two nights in Salvador, Bahia, and one night in São Paulo. Its primary focus is songs from Noites do Norte, his 2001 Nonesuch release exploring themes of race, slavery, and Brazil’s quest for a national identity. Live in Bahia also features new arrangements of such hits as "Cajuína" and "Tropicália" and the bossa nova classic "Samba de Verão," as well as songs from the past that are closely linked thematically to the principal material on the disc, such as "Two Naira Fifty Kobo" and "Sugar Cane Fields Forever."

    Tropical Truth: A Story of Music and Revolution in Brazil, published by Alfred A. Knopf in October 2002, tells the story of how Caetano and a group of friends from the state of Bahia created tropicalismo, a movement that shook Brazilian culture—and civic order—to its foundations and pushed Brazil, a nation then on the margins of world politics and economics, into the artistic avant-garde.

DescriptionExcerpt: 

Veloso performs before a homeland audience on this 2002 live double-disc. Says W magazine, "A rapturous crowd, often singing along word for word, neatly balances the gentle sophistication of the Brazilian pop legend, bringing a powerful immediacy to classics as well as new tunes."
