    Caetano Veloso Kicks Off US Tour Behind "Zii e Zie" at New York's Terminal 5

    Caetano Veloso’s new album, zii e zie, was released last week on Nonesuch Records. Now comes the start of a six-city US tour, which kicks off at New York City's Terminal 5 tonight. Up next are stops in DC, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Miami. For further details, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    New York NPR affiliate WNYC has chosen tonight's show for its daily Gig Alert, offering a free download of the album track "Sem Cais." WNYC's Alana Harper writes of the tune: "Veloso's easy, sunny vocals and guitar warm up a simple melody before the tune takes a turn into slinky, minimalist funk courtesy of Veloso's backing group." Read more and check out the track at wnyc.org.

    Following a recent performance from Veloso and his zii e zie band in Argentina, the Buenos Aires Herald said the singer was "as radiant as ever." What's more, said Herald reviewer Ana Laura Caruso, "You don’t need to know Portuguese to understand the words but just experience the joy of listening to his songs backed by this eclectic and awesome rock band."

    In a series of video interviews on nonesuch.com, Veloso describes the music on his latest album as transamba, or “samba transcending itself.” You can watch all four videos, in which Veloso also discusses the concept behind the album, explains its title (which means "uncles and aunts" in Italian), and the recording process, at nonesuch.com/media.

    You can pick up a copy of zii e zie now in the Nonesuch Store.
