You know that feeling where you know that you have just met someone special? Well if you didn’t, you will now. Tom Zé is simply other-worldly, unique and powerful.
He was very influential in the Tropicália movement of 1960s Brazil. After the peak of the Tropicália period, Zé went into relative obscurity: it was only in the 1990s, when the musician and label head David Byrne discovered an album recorded by Zé many years earlier, that he returned to performing and releasing new material.
