Caetano Veloso Background
Hailing from Santo Amaro da Purificacao in Brazil, Caetano Veloso embraced the music characteristic of the Bahai region he grew up in. Inspired by North American, Caribbean and African music, Caetano Veloso also absorbed the sound of Brazilian bossa nova hero Joao Gilberto. When he was 23, he joined his sister, Marian Bethania, in Rio. Veloso then took first in a lyric-writing contest and scored a contract with the Philips label shortly after. Veloso quickly fell in line with other Brazilian talents like Gilberto Gil and Gal Costa, who were a part of the emerging musica popular brasileira (MPB) scene. The spotlight shined brightly on Veloso for his creativity and determination as well as his leftist political views. By the time 1967 rolled around, Veloso became a part of Brazil's mushrooming hippie trend. Joined by Gil, Veloso pioneered a fresh, new brand of pop music billed as tropicalia. Tropicalia preserved a bossa nova element, adding hints of art rock and folk rock to a soup of bold electric guitars and narrative poetry. At first, audiences were not very receptive of this new wave of music and the shift from traditional Brazilian music came with its own set of perils. Since 1964, Brazil was controlled by a military dictatorship that frowned upon extremists. Topicalistas were instantly under fire when massive efforts were made to inhibit their performances and censor their lyrics as well as their TV and radio appearances. Veloso and Gil didn't try to hide their contempt of the government and as a consequence served time in prison. Following a rebellious show they did together, Veloso and Gil were pushed into exile in London. Veloso soldiered on with his music career, penning tunes for other tropicalia artists, but he couldn't go back to his native country until 1972.
For years, Veloso adhered to a rigorous performance, producing and recording pace. And, during the '70s, he took up writing poems and a book of articles. When the '80s arrived, Veloso's popularity boomed outside of Brazil, and he toured Israel, Africa and Paris. He also gave his debut performance in the U.S. in 1983.
Throughout the '90s, he released several more albums and was featured in Spin magazine prior to the arrival of his Livro album of 1998.
Still going strong today, Veloso's name continues to raise eyebrows and garners attention. Caetano Veloso is truly a musical force to be reckoned with!
