Lucas Santtana performs live

Lucas Santtana was born in 1970 in Salvador de Bahia, black capital of the militant Nordeste region of Brazil. An early acolyte of tropicalism, the radical movement embodied by Gilberto Gil, Tom Zé and Caetano Veloso, which first appeared in Bahia at the end of the 1960s, Santtana has kept its spirit alive and held true to one of its precepts: every vision of modernity involves a break, a rupture. His eighth album, O Céu É Velho Há Muito Tempo (‘The Sky Has Been Old For A Long time’), follows this logic.
