Killbossa


Kill Bossa plays the music of the Tropicalia movement from Brazil -- a music of passion, protest, and innovation whose main progenitors were the monumental musicians Os Mutantes, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Tom Ze.

Incorporating equal parts samba, American rock and roll, avant garde lyrics and a deprecating sense of humor, this revolutionary music pushed the boundaries of what was possible both musically and politically during a repressive military dictatorship in late-sixties Brazil.

Kill Bossa is an American band playing the music of Brazilians who were in turn influenced by American music, especially the Beatles, the Beach Boys and the Rolling Stones. The result is a meta-look at international cross-pollination and the unexpected scope of pop culture, with a danceable samba beat!
