Artist Focus: Gal Costa

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album. 

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

This month, Bom Dia! host Zaremba plays favourites from a Brazilian icon in Gal Costa. Recording for over 50 years and a linchpin in the Tropicalia movement, Gal has a discography that reaches into innumerable areas of Brazilian music and life. With tracks spanning from the late 60s to the present day.
