Prodigious musical bravado comes to the Hollywood Bowl this fall by way of three first-rate acts. We start off with the hero of Tropicalia, who returns with a new album, "Abraçaço"—the fifty-second record for the Brazilian artist. Built on foundations of Tropicalia, Veloso's hypnotic style mixes Brazilian popular music, rock guitar riffs, funk Carioca and pop arrangements. He's joined by cassically trained violinist (in the Suzuki method), leftfield singer-songwriter, guitarist, master whistler and Chicago native Andrew Bird, supporting his most recent release I Want to See Pulaski at Night. Rounding out the trio is psycho folk Devendra Banhart, who, a decade since his first album, is no less wonderful and no less weird—the irresistible lead single from Banhart’s new album, Mala, is inspired by Hildegard von Bingen, the 12th-century nun, mystic and composer. Catch these three for a unique evening of top-notch listening September 21. Tickets on sale May 4.
