Concert

Caetano Veloso - "Meu Coco Tour" (Brazil)

A musical visionary visits Norway for the first time.

Ever since the early days of Oslo World, Caetano Veloso has been a dream booking. This year, in a special concert prior to the thirtieth edition of the festival, it finally comes true.

Veloso has touched listeners all over the world ever since he burst on to the Brazilian scene in the sixties. His artistry spans different genres and formats, and in many ways, he sums up the philosophy behind our festival: He is an activist speaking up against oppressiveness. He is a musical revolutionary, essential to the Tropicália movement which shaped Brazilian music from the sixties on, borrowing freely from different musical traditions, the avant garde and pop music. When you look at the boundary crossing, pluralistic musical reality today, the Tropicália revolutionaries are essential spiritual ancestors.

Veloso's popularity grew outside of Brazil throughout the eighties and nineties - and he has used that exposure to speak his mind while at the same time staying true to the deep wisdom found in simple songs, whether they’re penned by himself or the vast range of memorable interpretations he has done. He has entered his seventh decade as a performer, and his latest album, Meu Coco from 2021, shows that he hasn’t lost his touch.

Oslo World is proud to welcome the legendary Caetano Veloso for the very first time to Norway.
