Tropicália, also known as Tropicalismo, is a Brazilian artistic movement that arose in the late 1960s. It encompassed art forms such as theatre, poetry, and music. The movement was characterized by a combination of the popular and the avant-garde, as well as a fusion of traditional Brazilian culture with foreign influences.Today, Tropicália is chiefly associated with the musical faction of the movement, which merged Brazilian and African rhythms withrock and roll. Musicians who were part of the movement include Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes, Gal Costa, Tom Zé, and the poet/lyricist Torquato Neto, all of whom participated in the 1968 album Tropicália: ou Panis et Circencis, which served as a musical manifesto.

“You’ll go toe to toe like David and Goliath

They will be Goliath and you will throw the stone”

is my favorite lyric ever and this is important to me.
