Bandadois (Ao Vivo)
Label: Gege Produções Artísticas
Yes, Gil is such an elder statesman in Brazil that he actually became the minister of culture under Lula. But who better? And it is an absolute joy to hear the singer, liberated from office, return to recording with such grace. This release features Gil and his acoustic guitar with minimal backing, and that stripped-down aesthetic serves his offbeat interpretations of his own and others' classic songs well.
