Milton Nascimento

Following Memorial Hall appearances by Brazilian music kings Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, we now bring you the monumentally influential singer-songwriter Milton Nascimento, whose transformative early work fusing Africanized jazz with Latin-American folk enabled a generation of artists to free themselves from bossa nova. Recording more than 37 solo albums and receiving four Grammy Awards, he has collaborated with Herbie Hancock, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, James Taylor, Wayne Shorter, Duran Duran, Sarah Vaughan, Esperanza Spalding and countless others, casting a spell on audiences for the better half of a century with his extraordinary vocal range and magnetic stage presence.
