Gig Information

Ponsonby Social Club presents:
A Tribute to Gilberto Gil.

Gilberto Gil is a Brazilian singer-songwriter and politician, known for both his musical innovation and political activism.
From 2003 to 2008, he served as Brazil's Minister of Culture in the administration of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Gil's musical style incorporates an eclectic range of influences, including rock, Brazilian genres including samba, African music, and reggae.

Gil started to play music as a child and was a teenager when he joined his first band.
He began his career as a bossa nova musician and grew to write songs that reflected a focus on political awareness and social activism. He was a key figure in the Música popular brasileira and tropicália movements of the 1960s, alongside artists such as longtime collaborator Caetano Veloso. The Brazilian military regime that took power in 1964 saw both Gil and Veloso as a threat, and the two were held for nine months in 1969 before they were told to leave the country. Gil moved to London, but returned to Bahia in 1972 and continued his musical career, as well as worked as a politician and environmental advocate.

Put together by Brazilian Kiwi resident Henrique Morales this will be a night not to be missed.

Come and join us on a tribute to one of the greatest Brazilian artists of all time!
from 8pm at Ponsonby Social Club.
