Most Brazilians believe their national identity is closely tied to the country’s music, as it unites those of all social backgrounds and creates a place of refuge from real life. However, as the dictatorship gained more control and became increasingly strict during the mid-1960s, innovation and creativity in art greatly diminished.One key figure in uprooting this paradigm was Caetano Veloso. He aligned with the hippie movement and joined Gil to create a new form of music known as Tropicalia, which artists used to express provocative ideas and politically daring lyrics in a form of peaceful protest. It combined traditional Brazilian culture with various foreign countries’s artistic characteristics. Certain sections of the public found their voice for freedom in the music, while others reacted angrily to the political content expressed in the art of Tropicalia. This is the story of Caetano Veloso's journey with his friend Gilberto Gil.Samba/Bossa Nova Band(Chambered Electric/Acoustic Guitar) Mercedes Sara Landazuri(Ukulele Bass) Adam Haus(Percussion) Leo Peña 18" bass drum14" snareHi hatRide & standPandeiro, tamborim, shakers14" Floortom VOCALISTSMatt GriffoDrake ShraderKathleen GibsonKerri Morrison STORYTELLERMercedes LandazuriSupport the show

Jane Fonda has had a life full of activism and has now begun “Fire Drill Fridays.” The protests, which Fonda refers to as "Fire Drill Friday," are to show support for a Green New Deal and bring awareness to the ways in which climate change affects other parts of human life, such as women's rights, access to drinking water and global militarism.It's amazing to me how many other people she is having come with her to join the cause. It's truly inspiring. This episode is all about how Jane started and at the end about where she is now. The story is told by comedian "Steph Charaska". Listen to the unedited podcast and help support the episodes at --> https://www.patreon.com/posts/32661016  <--Steph Charaska (Storyteller)BAND:Drake Shrader (vocals) Holly Souchack (vocals)Mary Hynes (vocals)Lexi Alioto (vocals) Arne Parrot (guitar) Matt Griffo (vocal/piano/bass)Dan Krackhardt (cajon)Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/mattgriffo)

They have been feuding since 2016 when Kapoor received exclusive rights to the Vantablack pigment, said to be the blackest shade of black ever created.In retaliation, Semple created the "pinkest pink" paint pigment and banned Kapoor from purchasing it, shortly followed by his Faze colour-changing paint. Now the British artist has done the same thing with Black 3.0.Listen to the unedited podcast and help support the episodes at --> https://www.patreon.com/posts/32638318 <--Tamale Sepp (Storyteller)BAND:Drake Shrader (vocals) Holly Souchack (vocals)Lexi Alioto (vocals) Arne Parrot (guitar) Matt Griffo (vocal/piano/organ/bongos/bass/melodica)Dan Krackhardt (cajon)Support the show

Balloonfest '86 was a 1986 event in which the United Way of Cleveland in Ohio set a world record by releasing almost one-and-a-half million balloons. The event was intended to be a harmless fundraising publicity stunt, but the balloons drifted back over the city, Lake Erie, and landed in the surrounding area, and caused problems for traffic and a nearby airport. The event also interfered with a United States Coast Guard search for two boaters who were later found drowned. In consequence, the organizers and the city faced lawsuits seeking millions of dollars in damages, and cost overruns put the event at a net loss.Listen to the unedited podcast at and help support the episodes at --> https://www.patreon.com/posts/unedited-full-86-32044367 <--Liz Stockwell (Storyteller)BAND:Brittany Flynn (vocals) Matt Castellvi (vocals)Arne Parrot (guitar/piano) Matt Griffo (vocal/piano/ukulele/melodica)Mike Amandes (percussion)Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/mattgriffo)
