Hill Auditorium

The great Brazilian female vocalist Gal Costa makes her area debut as part of UMS’s ongoing exploration of the superstars of Brazilian music, which has brought Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Milton Nascimento to area venues in recent years. Her professional career was launched in 1964 when she performed alongside Veloso, Gil, Maria Bethânia, and Tom Zé in the concert Nós, por exemplo, which opened a new theater in Salvador. Part of the Tropicalismo movement, Costa had two early nationwide hits, “Baby” and “Divino Maravilhoso,” both of which appeared on her eponymous solo debut album, now considered a Tropicalismo classic.
