• Gilberto Gil: Have Faith in the Feast!

    We're very excited that in just three week's time, international superstar Gilberto Gil kicks off our Voices from Latin America festival by returning to his musical roots with an evening of forró, the infectious dance music from Northeastern Brazil.

    In this video, Gil—one of the festival's four artistic advisors—reveals the deep debt his career owes to the folk-pop forró of Northeastern Brazil and its founder Luiz Gonzaga. He urges us to have "faith in the feast!"
