Bahian singer-songwriter Caetano Veloso is one of the most important musicians in Brazilian Popular Music (MPB). Some even consider him one of the best songwriters of the 20th century, being compared to names like Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, John Lennon, and Paul McCartney. He himself does not consider himself up to the standards of the aforementioned colleagues, nor of his compatriots Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, or Djavan, among others – not to mention Tom Jobim.

Caetano began his career interpreting bossa nova songs, under the influence of João Gilberto, one of the icons and founders of the bossa nova movement and who also collaborated with the musical style that became known as MPB. Caetano’s name became firmly established in the Tropicália movement, which was associated with the counterculture. Brazilian producer, arranger, and writer, the young Caetano participated in semi-amateur shows alongside Tom Zé, his sister Maria Bethânia, Gal Costa, and his partner Gilberto Gil. His first musical work was a soundtrack for the play “A exceção e a regra” (The Exception and the Rule), directed by Álvaro Guimarães in Salvador. His career already succeeded five decades.
