In the late 60s, the whole Western world was undergoing a cultural shift, and none more so than Brazil. In a climate of fear and repression in the thralls far-right dictatorship, Brazil’s pop culture scenario, encompassing film, visual art, theatre and music was going through a major upheaval, and arguably the biggest in modern Latin America – the Tropicália movement.

Up until 1967, the country was known internationally for the bossa nova genre – a tame and bucolic sound that marketed the country as a tropical paradise. However, as the military took control of politics, a large section of Brazil’s left-wing musicians didn’t consider bossa to be representative of the country any longer.

The figureheads of the movement, Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso drew from psychedelia, avant-garde musique concrete, Samba, funk and soul, which created a completely new wave of style, which rejected the conservative roots of bossa nova.

Afro-Brazilian jazz troupe Caravela will be recounting the history of the Tropicália revolution with a vibrant show full of passion, energy and life.
