Though Tropicália ended in December 1968, the movement continued to intensify cultural production in Brazil and inspire new artists who were identified with a “post-tropicalist” current in Brazilian popular music. This chapter traces the artistic trajectory of the tropicalists after the movement had formally ended. Many of the top stars of Brazilian popular music who had emerged in the 1960s were living abroad for both political and professional reasons. While in England, Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso participated in the vibrant cultural scene of London and continued to record songs. When they returned from exile in the 1970s, both were celebrated as central figures of Brazilian counterculture.
