About this show

With a career spanning four decades and nearly 40 albums, seven-time Grammy Award Winner Gilberto Gil returns to weave his musical magic at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts fresh off a highly acclaimed 2009 European Tour. Alongside his son Bem Gil (guitars) and the super talented Jaques Morelenbaum (cellist/producer/conductor), The String Concert is sure to surprise, entertain, inspire, and sizzle. As a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Gilberto Gil fused bossa nova, samba and salsa with rock and folk music, becoming a true world music pioneer. In the late 1960s he introduced the Tropicália movement alongside Caetano Veloso and went on to become Minister of Culture for Brazil, playing a key role in the constant modernization of Brazilian popular music and culture throughout the world.
