Vera Mantero and Gabriel Godoi play Caetano Veloso, 2000

Vera Mantero, accompanied by Gabriel Godoi on guitar, sings Caetano Veloso, Brazilian composer, poet and singer, celebrating one of her biggest passions – poetry in the form of song – and at the same time one of her most admired artists.
The fact that Vera Mantero is singing instead of dancing is not so surprising. The use of the voice in her work is not recent and is part of her vision of a performer specialized in 'everything', using all the resources that the body needs in order to express what it wants to express. Besides, Vera feels very close to what the music, poetry, and art of Caetano Veloso sets free: something close to a sense of tragedy and generosity, of pain and love, of death and possibility.

This concert was created in September 2000 with Pedro Pinto (guitar and arrangements) for the event “An afternoon of poetry”, Festival WAY in Lisbon and it has been presented in several venues in Portugal, France, Belgium and Germany. Since 2007 has been presented with Gabriel Godoi.
