    Gilberto Gil at Davies Symphony Hall 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 Brazils Tropiclia 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 Brazils northeastern roots rhythms. Since returning to Brazil from his London exile in the early 1970s, Gil has held center stage as a charismatic performer, songwriter and interpreter of the music of Bob Marley. With several dozen standards to his credit, he has been interpreted by just about every major Brazilian artist of the past four decades. In recent years Gil found inspiration in the joyful, upbeat accordion-driven forr style of music and dance, starting with his soundtrack to the award-winning 2000 film Me You Them. After serving as Brazils Minister of Culture from 2003-2008, he went on to explore classics by forr heroes Luiz Gonzaga and Jackson do Pandeiro, and his new album, Gilbertos Samba, is a loving salute to classic samba compositions of Jobim, Joo Gilberto and others. Expect a party and expect to dig deeply into Brazils musical heritage with one of the countrys major cultural icons.Artist Websitegilbertogil.com.br"Mr. Gils music dances in the space between local and international, between home-grown tradition and global information.
