Almodovar used him in a cameo in "Talk to Her" and the film slowed to a lilting langour.
Known as "the Bob Dylan of Brazil", Veloso's also a political activist who spent several months in prison.
He issued an English-language albumn in 2004, but my favourites are his soulful, classic Portuguese tropicalia recordings, and current world-rhythm works like the recent Ce.
"There's a wonderful Brazilian poet who was our best, biggest, greatest modernist, Oswald De Andrade. He has one poem, which I think is the shortest poem in the world.
The title is "Amor" and the poem is "humor". Just that. Amor/humor- love/humor combined- is the method of approach for quotations and references. Without that, it doesn't mean anything." - Caetano Veloso
