Gal Costa with Romero Lubambo
Friday, October 30, 2009 | 8:00 pm
Costa was the most compelling singer behind Brazil’s Tropicália movement, turning out sexy, swinging pop-art experiments that draped left-wing politics in the folds of a voice like no other. Now past 60, her sly lilt has gained depth, cracking open timeless lyrics to show what melts inside. In this intimate Reynolds show, the star reworks bossa nova standards and sambas, accompanied only by Lubambo, the finest Brazilian guitarist on the planet.
“Girl, you sing beautifully. Someday I will return to record an album only with you.”
–João Gilberto to Gal Costa, 1965
