from the Barbican website :
Hot on the heels of the Tropicália season, Brazil's coolest Minister of Culture returns to the Barbican with his inimitable combination of rock, roots, samba and reggae.
Ever experimental, Gilberto Gil's musical performances are driven by the same passion and vitality that propelled him to stardom almost 40 years ago. As he bounds across the stage, switching languages and tempos with ease, his love for life is utterly infectious. It is easy to believe music can change the world when Gil is performing.
