Brutality Garden

Tropicália is a short-lived but high-impact cultural movement that coalesced in the realm of popular music in 1968. The movement emerged during a period of intense political and cultural conflict in Brazil, and critiqued the military rule and the national-popular project of the left-wing populist government. This book analyses the emergence of the tropicalist movement and its significance in Brazilian culture and society. It focuses on two key figures of the tropicalist movement, Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, highlighting their legacy in Brazilian culture.

Keywords:   Tropicália, popular music, Brazil, military rule, left-wing, tropicalist movement, culture, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso
