A couple of weeks ago, I featured Caetano Veloso, performing his great “Tropicalia”. This week, it’s his old friend (and sometime brother-in-law)’s turn:
Gilberto Gil, Brazilian rocker turned minister of culture, rockin’ out here in the garb of the “Sons of Gandhi”, his longtime favorite samba school in his hometown of Salvador, the capital of Bahia.
Meanwhile, other faces of the left were also representin’:
The iconic Che put in his appearance on a float.
And Nelson Mandela’s giant effigy rode in on a tiger.
