Caetano Veloso is celebrating his 77th birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed singers of his generation.
Popular singer-songwriter-producer-author Caetano Veloso (Sozinho, Cucurrucucú Paloma, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 77th birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Veloso, a cultural icon
Born Caetano Emanuel Viana Teles Veloso in Santo Amaro on August 7, 1942, his career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in Brazilian history. Veloso's not just a great singer, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Caetano hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Caetano Veloso as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 77.
Happy Birthday, Caetano, you're the best!
