  • about this album

    Celebrating 25 years of artistic/personal friendship, Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, two South American legends, channel the anything-goes spirit of the mid-'60s Tropicália movement they spearheaded into a set that Rolling Stone says, represents "Brazil's two 50-something songwriting giants at the peak of their powers."
