Rogério Duprat goes solo on A Banda Tropicalista do Duprat

Like a Brazilian Van Dykes Park adorned in pineapple shades and a white feather boa, Rogério Duprat swept through the tropicalia movement of the late 1960s, providing radiant string and orchestral arrangements for the likes of Os Mutantes, Caetano Veloso and Tom Zé. 1968’s A Banda Tropicalista do Duprat was his sole attempt at going it alone, a kaleidoscopic hot air balloon ride through tropicalia instrumentals as well as medleys of popular songs from up north (The Beatles’ Flying and Johnny Rivers’ Summer Rain are both highlights).
