Brazil: Tropicalia

f33bf44355b478b80bf2852c1748877e

The Brazilian Tropicalia movement in the late 1960’s was an answer to the upcoming British and American psychedelic music in general and especially The Beatles albums Revolver and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. A group of young artists became politically active and began their own revolution. The 1968 album Ou Panis Et Circencis was their musical manifesto with the likes of Gal Costa, Rogerio Duprat, the trio Os Mutantes, main forces Gilberto Gil & Caetano Veloso, Tom Ze and poet Torquato Neto. As Tropicalistas they were anti authority, anarchistic and against the military repression of the junta at that time. They saw the possibilities for theatrical expression and went on the road … One of their Brazilian influences was the extravaganza of singer and actress Carmen Miranda in the 1940’s and 1950’s and the movement itself influenced later popular artists like David Byrne, Arto Lindsay and Beck.
