Caetano Veloso  @  Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw @ Concertgebouw, Amsterdam

The legendary singer Caetano Veloso returns to Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw on Friday 19 May. Presenting ‘Teresa Canta Cartola’, Caetano is bringing the singer Teresa Cristina to Amsterdam. 

This concert tour with Teresa Cristina, which takes in a number of European cities, accompanies the release of her new album Teresa Canta Cartola in which she pays homage to the great poet and composer Cartola, of Rio’s famous Mangueira samba school. Caetano Veloso was present at the birth of this project and remains deeply impressed by Teresa Cristina’s performance:
“The tranquillity in which every chosen chord suggests Teresa’s voice entrance refines the listeners soul. And Teresa grows with every melody, every word, every second. Every Brazilian should watch and hear what happened on Theatro Net Rio that night,” said Veloso after her show during the opening evening. For Caetano, that moment led to his decision to bring the musical qualities of this charming singer to a wider public.
Teresa opens the programme with songs by Cartola, followed by Caetano’s presentation with voice and guitar. They conclude the evening by singing Caetano’s greatest hits together.
