Duke Performances will present – for the first time in North Carolina – Brazilian music legend Gal Costa with guitarist Romero Lubambo Friday, October 30, at 8 pm in Reynolds Theater in the Bryan Center of Duke University.
Gal Costa emerged from and was the most compelling singer behind Brazil’s Tropicália movement, a combination of US 60s’ psychedelia and Brazilian pop music. A peer of Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, Costa turned out sexy, swinging pop-art experiments with a voice that remains unrivaled. Now past 60 and with dozens of albums under her name, this star reworks bossa nova standards and sambas, accompanied only by Lubambo the finest Brazilian guitarist on the planet, for an intimate show in Reynolds Theater.
Costa appears as the second performer in Duke Performances’s Voices Lifted series, a set of three concerts focused on the art of the female voice and backed, in each case, by the unparalleled guitarist Romero Lubambo.
