Transa

Caetano Veloso

Also available as:


Elemental Music, together with Universal Music Spain proudly presents a new LP reissue of this long unavailable 1972 recording by the influential CAETANO VELOSO, considered the leading figure in Brazilâs Tropicália movement. Transa is generally regarded as a classic and was recorded while the artist was exiled in London,

though he returned to Brazil shortly after completing it. The sound of â70s electric rock predominates, fused with Brazilian rhythms and percussion, berimbau sounds, and his own violão playing. Perhaps this is why this album has seemed to gain in stature over the years. It offers enough Western styles to keep outsiders interested but also sounds undoubtedly Brazilian. It also helps that it features strong numbers as âYou Donât Know Meâ, âNine out of Tenâ (his best song in English according to

Caetano himself), âNeolithic Manâ and âMora Na Filosofiaâ (a song that originally caused uproar thanks to its rock treatment of a classic samba). âNostalgia (Thatâs What Rock ânâ Roll Is All About)â can also be seen as the template for Devendra Banhartâs first albums. Transa was listed by Rolling Stone Brasil as one of the 10 best Brazilian albums ever and Pitchfork elected âYou Donât Know Meâ as the 73rd best song from the seventies.
