Gilberto Gil & Family

Gilberto Gil and family promise to make your summer even hotter with their unique musical spectacle on 24 July at Arena5. Gilberto Gil is an adventurous, experimental daredevil and an exuberantly singing master musician. His revolutionary music full of rousing rhythms and melodious strings will undoubtedly make this the party of the year at Arena5!

This multiple Grammy winner is one of the pioneers of the Brazilian Tropicália cultural movement, a generation of musicians who in the mid-1960s trod on the tender toes of the military junta. Because of his socially-engaged songs, Gil was even forced to relocate to London in 1969 after he came under pressure from the military regime. But he was certainly not defeated, and from 2003 to 2008 he even served as Minister for Culture in President Lula da Silva’s Brazilian government.

Fans of the Brazilian folk song have worshipped Gilberto Gil for over fifty years. The Brazilian folk hero’s unique guitar style is the missing link between bossanova, funk and reggae, and continues to touch the hearts of audiences worldwide. Gil’s family is the focal point of his life, and like him they have developed into talented musicians in their own right.

On this tour, he shares the stage with his children and grandchildren. Expect a lavish Brazilian family celebration with the most uplifting rhythms, but also intimate moments that delve deep into the heart of their musical universe.
