From Bossa Nova to social activism, Gilberto Gil’s influence has reached Amazonian proportions. While studying business administration in college, Gil first heard João Gilberto on the radio. Inspired, he bought a guitar and learned to play and sing bossa nova. He has worked with Jimmy Cliff, Fela Kuti, and Stevie Wonder, and now at 72, the Brazilian singer-songwriter brings his Tropicália style to Ann Arbor.
