A Musical Journey with Gilberto Gil

  • 3.5
After decades of sold out shows and international recognition, musician Gilberto Gil embarks on a new kind of world tour. Traveling from Brazil to Australia and Africa, where he meets with local indigenous communities, Gil continues the work he began as Brazil’s first black Minister of Culture, promoting the power of cultural diversity in a globalized world and sharing his vision for the future: a diverse, interconnected planet filled with hope, exchange, and of course, music!

A glimpse of a great musician and social activist along a few stops on a lifelong journey to merge the making of music with the awakening of consciousness for the life of the poor of Brazil. There isn't much specifically *happening* in this documentary, it's not dramatic or slick, but perhaps for that reason, it allows the genuineness of spirit and unpretentiously sincere simplicity of Gil's mission and direction to come through. He's now older and more low-key, but still a great and generous creator at heart.
