Gilberto Gil - 30th Annual San Francisco Jazz Festival

Thursday, Oct 25, 2012 7:30p
Paramount Theatre Oakland, CA

From musical revolutionary to international pop star to beloved statesman, Gilberto Gil has lived a life worthy of a Hollywood thriller. As a founding member of Brazil’s Tropicália movement, Gil and fellow Bahians Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa radically reinvented Brazilian popular music in the mid-60s by combining Beatlesque psychedelia, art rock and Brazil’s northeastern roots rhythms.

"Mr. Gil’s music dances in the space between local and international, between home-grown tradition and global information." — The New York Times
