Clements Library (909 South University Ave, across the street from the Law School)
LACS, IRWG, and UMS present an Artist Interview: "Who is Gal Costa?" The Who Is…? Series will explore the meteoric rise of Gal Costa, one of the artists central to the Tropicalismo movement in Brazilian popular music. Like other artists from that movement, her music has evolved over time, yet the strength and the heart of her talent continues. The artist herself will be interviewed by UM Professors Sueann Caulfield and Jesse Hoffnung-Garskoff, both experts in Brazilian history and culture, who will discuss her artistry, cultural background, and personal story.
