This album is the definitive statement of the Tropicalia movement in Brazil.
The album’s collaborators - Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Tom Zé, Nara Leao, Gal Costa and Os Mutantes - mixed psychedelic rock with boleros, sambas, bossa nova and jazz into a carnival-esque parade which first announced the new global sound of Brazilian music.
Rolling Stone magazine in Brazil has voted this album No.2 in their 100 Best Brazilian Albums Of All Time.
This classic album is Tropicalia’s manifesto - a fantastical fusing of psychedelic rock and pop, Brazilian traditional music and the avant-garde.
