LA Phil presents GILBERTO GIL - featuring the rhythms of the northeaster Brazil "FORRO"
The godfather of the Tropicália movement, Brazilian singer-guitarist Gilberto Gil makes his Walt Disney Concert Hall debut with a concert of the danceable, funky, folkloric rhythms from northeastern Brazil known as forró.
And more: With over 50 albums, awards ranging from seven Grammys to the Polar Prize, and a strong social commitment in his lyrics, Gil was a natural choice to be Brazil's Minister of Culture for five years.
Programs, artists, dates, prices and availability subject to change.
This event is part of the KCRW World Music Series with the LA Phil
