Agenda Cultural: 20th March, 2024


By Roger Costa


Brazilian master composer and singer Caetano Veloso is one of those cases when an artist simply becomes an instant adjective, a strong meaning of great quality, thoughtful music and sociopolitical engagement. Since the 60’s as one of Tropicalia’s founder, and his tragic experiences with the country’s dictatorial regime leading to exile, Caetano has been in the spotlight as one of Brazil’s most iconic musical representatives, beloved by the nation, an influential force and a richly diverse, poetic composer. Born is Santo Amaro, Bahia, Caetano is said to make his final international tour, and those who miss this opportunity must go to his native Bahia for a chance to spot him perform again. Caetano Veloso, “Meu Coco”, Saturday, April 6th at NJPAC, 1 Center Street, Newark. Tickets $60.-$130. INFO:
