Gal Costa


Adrian Horton “Gal Costa, influential Brazilian singer, dies aged 77”*3から引用しておく;

Costa was a muse of Brazil’s booming popular music scene in the late 1960s, and sang with some of the biggest names in Brazilian music, including Tom Jobim, Chico Buarque, Milton Nascimento and her close friend Caetano Veloso.

Born on 26 September 1945 in the city of Salvador, the capital of the state of Bahia, Costa began her professional singing career in 1964. She released her first album, Domingo, in 1967, before joining the Tropicália artistic movement, which melded Brazilian artistic styles with foreign influences. Her eponymous solo debut in 1969 is now considered a Tropicalismo classic.
