That guy was probably Gilberto Gil. I remember he was make sucess in foreign countries like 2 years ago
Pretty good stuff he does.
But to be quite honest, Gilberto Gil can't be considered "Modern", athoulgh he still is making music and all. What kids hear here aren't of much better quality than Backstreet Boys or Britney Spears. We have things lile "É O Tchan" (I doubt any of you guys know this shit, but I know Akira knows it ), and even worse stuff.
People who make quality music here, like Gilberto Gil, Milton Nascimento or Djavan are more or less the BB King or John Mayal of America: Not many people give attention to them.
I forgot Fred said we were supposed to be back to the topic
