Gilberto Gil live in NYC!

We saw an amazing show by Gilberto Gil last night at the Nokia Theater in Times Square! Beautiful sounding Brazilian music and the never-ending positive, multi-cultural groove! A wonderful night with one of the greatest Brazilian musicians of the last 50 years.

Since we left our diggity-dog at home with Drea's folks, we particularly enjoyed Gil's version of Bob Marley's "Kaya." Drea was sure there was some cosmic convergence that made him play that one in honor of our dog! Here is a different version you might enjoy:

And, though I've posted this before, you might like to look at this trailer on the Tropicalia movement, which Gil was a part of in the 1960s:


  1. cosmic convergence indeed. sounds like you two are having a glorious time. looking forward to hearing all about the shenanigans.

  2. Yes, indeed! Living large in the Big Apple. We look forward to filling you in upon our return to the heartland...
