|A Selected Discography|
Do Norte - 2001
"It's the stuff of policy journals and think tanks. But Veloso, the Brazilian singer-songwriter who is a master of allegory, breathes the romance of the streets into his subject matter, telling of lives suspended by slavery and the crusaders who rebelled against it, " Rolling Stone's Tom Moon writes.
"Livro is a
fresh, fearless collection that balances ideas and sonics, art-song
stream and pop sport, street hummability and academic achievement, Tropicalia
guts and Antonio Carlos Jobim grace," Rolling Stone's James Hunter
Public Radio International's AfroPop WorldWide program said this "collaboration by two of Brazil's most adventurous and appealing pop musicians has vitality and class to spare. The release celebrates twenty-five years of tropicalismo, the liberating blend of roots culture, rock-and-roll, politics, and poetry that landed both of these artists in exile under Brazil's 1970's-era military regime."
Estampa - 1994
Demais - 1986
"A new polemic arises. The term 'odara' will become synonymous to 'hippie'- or, for the lefties, 'alienado' ('alienated'); the 'odaras' in turn will call any who asks them their specific political position, 'ideological patrols', updating the division between the tropicalistas and those committed to the MPB, ten years after the movement."
Coisa - 1975
Veloso - 1968
"My inspiration nowadays is tending towards very different directions than those followed until now".
