We'll start with the best known album of the three, the great Tropicália: ou Panis et Circencisa 1968 collaboration album by artists including Gilberto GilCaetano Veloso,Tom ZéOs Mutantes and Gal Costa. Considered an important record in the history of Brazilian music, it features arrangements by Rogerio Duprat and lyrical contributions from Torquato NetoIt is considered to be the manifesto of the Tropicalismo movement and is number 2 on Rolling Stone's list of 100 greatest Brazilian albums of all time.

Next, we will hear the long out-of print self-titled debut album of the highly esteemed Grupo Medusa.  Active for only a short period of time in the early 1980's this group is a direct descendant of the legendary Quarteto Novo, not only through its music, which could be considered an evolution of the style, but also through the presence of the great Quarteto Novo member Heraldo do Monte in its lineup!
