TheExped Music Series: Bow Before The Legend That Is Caetano

If I had to come back to life as a revolutionary Brazilian Tropicalismo/Samba musician and five-time grammy award-winner who has been featured in a Pedro Almodóvar movie, I’d totally pick Caetano Veloso. (I was going to go with David Bowie, then I realized he fit none of these categories.) In […]
