tropicalia… a revolution in brazilian culture
Visit the site.
In February 2006, as Brazil prepares itself for Carnival, the Barbican launches a major, three-month festival entitled Tropicália (13 February – 22 May), celebrating a revolutionary movement in Brazilian culture. Tropicália took its name from an installation created by Brazilian artist, Hélio Oiticica in 1967 and subsequently became the title of one of the most celebrated albums in Brazilian music history, featuring Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa and Os Mutantes.
