The Point presents Gilberto Gil
Monday, April 20 at 7:30pm
Flynn Theater - Burlington, VT
From musical revolutionary to international pop star to beloved statesman, Gilberto Gil has “surfed the world while digging deep into Brazilian roots” (JazzTimes). As a founding member of Brazil’s Tropicália movement, Gil reinvented Brazilian popular music by combining Beatle-esque psychedelia, art rock, and Brazilian roots rhythms. Since returning to Brazil from his London exile in the early 1970s, Gil has held center stage as a charismatic performer with multiple Grammys, six gold records, four platinum singles, and more than five million records sold. Expect a party with the master of Brazilian pop.
