Gal Costa

Samba Toronto presents

Gal Costa is a true icon of the Brazilian Tropicalia movement in music. With more than 30 recordings spanning a career of 40 years, she will be making her Canadian debut at Massey Hall after the past successful Toronto run of her fellow Tropicalistas Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso. The grace and style of Gal, her signature voice, heard in every delicate, yet forceful note, is the epitome and symbol of one of the world's most passionate places. A Brazilian musical legend, Gal will be singing the music of Brazil's greatest composers, some of whom wrote their songs inspired by her. Antonio Carlos Jobim, when writing Gabriela, a work which also became a feature film, based it upon the enchanting essence and appeareance of Gal". Gal will be joined by Romero Lubambo, a master in his own right, on Brazilian viol„o.
