Well I love the Brazilian “tropicalia” music from the 60s and 70s – Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Jorge Ben, Caetano Veloso and the like. So it was fun to read this memoir and see what they were up to, what they thought they were up to, and the context in which their movement emerged -- from Caetano Veloso’s perspective, that is. And that's key: it's his perspective. A fun and important read, nonetheless.
