Gilberto Gil Minister of Culture
(photo credit:Agência Nacional:
|Gilberto Gil serves as the Minister of Culture for
Brazil. Through his career as a musician he carries out a fundamental
role in the constant modernization process of Brazilian popular music.
A member of this scene for 32 years, he has developed one of the most
relevant and renown careers as a singer, composer and guitar-player
in this field. His music has a strong rhythmic appeal and melodic
richness, as mixed as its people. Gil's importance to the culture
of his country goes back to the 60's, when he and Caetano Veloso created
Tropicalism. Radically innovative in the music scene, the movement
assimilated pop culture to national genres. Deeply critical on political
and moral levels, Tropicalism ended up being repressed by the authoritarian
regime. Gil and Caetano were imprisoned and exiled. With 30 albums
released, Gilberto Gil has six gold records, four platinum singles
and more than 4 million records sold. For his work, Gilberto Gil was
honored with the Knighthood of the Order of the Arts and Literature
by the French Minister of Culture Jack Lang, and has also received
many prizes in Brazil, where he is a nationally known personality.
In the last ten years Gil has also become a man of action in extra-musical
fields. He has been a councilman for Salvador and is involved in environmental
and social projects to this day.
