Seven-time GRAMMY winner, Gilberto Gil, will perform for the first time at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center Monday, November 5, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. The legendary Brazilian singer, composer, and guitar-player has wowed crowds worldwide for almost half a century, mixing samba, bossa nova, rock, reggae, and funk. Gil’s socially relevant music has taken him on a worldwide odyssey from banishment to becoming Brazil’s Minister of Culture, from MTV to Carnegie Hall. For more on his journey, go here.
I asked Gilberto Gil how he feels about taking a Nashville stage for the first time. He replied:
This is my first visit to Tennessee which I know is a very musical state. It’s thrilling playing in such a musical reference as Nashville, the birthplace of country music. I can’t wait to get there.
