Firebrand Extraordinaire

Singer composer Caetano Veloso is famous for shocking the bourgeoisie and defying expectations. His Tropicália movement didn't please the military dictatorship, which sent him into exile. Back in Brazil, he put on a Carmen Miranda show and his fans were scandalized by his androgynous behavior. Seen as a symbol of Brazilian pop music, he is now on a worldwide tour singing Latino, non-Brazilian songs.
