Brazil; Milton Nascimento goes Global

Milton Nascimento will turn 80 on October 26, 2022. At the same time that he will celebrate eight decades of life, Milton Nascimento intends to say goodbye to the stages in 2022. The announcement of the A Última Sessão de Música tour was made in October 2021, but no presentation date has yet been announced.

Milton’s most recent show was the live with Orquestra Ouro Preto, in December, when he celebrated the 50th anniversary of the album Clube da Esquina , which will be completed this month. The presentation was held at the Cine-Theatro Central, in Juiz de Fora (MG), without an audience. In fact, three closing shows of the Clube da Esquina tour postponed due to the pandemic were rescheduled for April. 

The celebration of the album had already started with the miniseries Milton and Clube da Esquina , which aired in 2020 on Canal Brasil (now available on Globoplay). Directed by Vitor Mafra and featuring names such as Samuel Rosa, Iza and Ney Matogrosso , the program focuses on the songs and intimacy of Bituca, Ronaldo Bastos and the brothers Márcio and Lô Borges.

Milton’s last studio album was released in 2010, entitled …E a Gente Sonhando . From then on, Bituca dedicated himself to live recordings and re-recordings. One of these works was the EP Existe Amor , from 2020, in partnership with Criolo. In December of the same year, he released the single Drão , composed by Gilberto Gil, for the soundtrack of the Amor e Sorte series . But there is something new planned for 2022: Milton published a video in the studio in January, highlighting that he was recording his first project of the year, without giving further details.

Speaking of which, Milton is often active on his networks, with videos and tender posts. However, he has already taken advantage of the space to talk about politics: on the holiday of September 7, 2021, when several supporters of the federal government occupied the streets of cities across the country with speeches against the Federal Supreme Court (STF) and Congress, he published a video playing Chalice . Composed by Chico Buarque and Gil, the song is a symbol of resistance to the repression of the military dictatorship in Brazil. In the caption of the post, Milton protested by writing “Fora Bolsonaro”.
