Gal Costa India

This record just came in the mail from Brazil. It takes a while for records to be shipped from Brazil. I started to get all nervous about being ripped off, but it eventually showed up. This LP is from 1973 just a few years after the Tropicalia movement and just before things got disco-y. Gal, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Tom Ze, Os Mutantes were all making incredible music at that time. The movement also included art, poetry and film. I tried to read Caetano's book about the subject but it was way too academic for me. There was a lot of theory behind the whole movement according to Caetano who along with Gilberto Gil was actually jailed and eventually exiled from Brazil for a while. This Brazilian website is a great place to learn about the Tropicalia movement also.
