Tropicalia magic! ‘Diva Maravilhoso’ by the genius of Gal Costa

With Tropicalia (or Tropicalismo) in the middle of a rennaisance, it seems only fair to shine the light away from Os Mutantes and Gilberto Gil and look at the first lady of Brazilian music, Gal Costa. This video is a stunning performance of ‘Diva Maravilhoso’ from a festival in 1968. Thrilling, inventive and genius.
