Caetano Veloso Releases New CD Posted by on Apr 22, 2009 in Music

Caetano Veloso, one of Brazil’s most beloved musicians and songwriters, has released a new CD, Zii e zie. It’s now on sale in Brazil and abroad (see here and here).

Caetano composed the songs in Rio de Janeiro last year, when it was very rainy, and was inspired by the weather. He also includes aging and the Brazilian political reality as themes. The title of the album means uncle and aunt in Italian, but Caetano says he wanted the title to sound nonsensical and odd. You can read more about the CD on his blog and hear more in the interview below. You can also listen to one of his new songs here.
