Milton Nascimento

Multitalented Milton Nascimento is frequently acclaimed as Brazil's greatest musician. As a singer/songwriter, he weaves a startling blend of musical influences, including Brazilian and African folk strains, European classical music, and the Brazilian bossa nova. His Portuguese lyrics range from themes of universal love and the spiritual unification of the child and adult, to expressions of the struggle of oppressed people in Latin America and throughout the world.
