Gilberto Gil, the Bahia-born superstar who cofounded the influential tropicalia movement, has blended Brazilian samba and bossa nova with rock, soul, and reggae for four decades. On this soundtrack to the film Me, You, Them, which depicts the exploits of a woman and her three husbands living in poor northeastern Brazil, Gil goes back to his folk roots. He plays and sings forro: the country music from the region depicted in the movie. The accordion-like sanfona is the primary instrument in this genre. Gil's feathery, impassioned vocals imbue the festive "Ola eu Aqui de Nova," "Bahia da Penha," and the reggae-tinged "Eperando na Janela" and Luiz Gonzaga's haunting "Juazeiro." Backed by drums, percussion, guitars, bass, keyboards, and background vocals, Gilberto Gil has shown the world another glorious musical side of his country. --Eugene Holley Jr.
