Gil, Nando and Gal – Trinca de ases (Altafonte, 2018)
Three of Brazil’s best known artists, singer-songwriter and guitarist Gilberto Gil, vocalist Gal Costa and singer-songwriter and guitarist Nando Reis got together last year to perform a set of live concerts. The live performances were recorded and appear in a new 2-CD set titled Trinca de Ases, Multishow Ao Vivo.
The set includes well-known songs by Gil and Reis and covers of popular songs by Caetano Veloso and Stevie Wonder. This is popular Brazilian music (MPB) at its best highlighting the vocals of the three stars, representing two generations, including solo performances, duets and vocal trio interactions.
The trio was supported by bassist Magno Brito and percussionist Kainan do Jêjê. Both are members of Sinara.
