One result of David Byrne's love affair with Brazilian music was a friendship with veteran singer and activist Caetano Veloso, who, like Byrne, mixes catchy tunes with ironic, sometimes surreal lyrics. This 2004 acoustic show is an entrancing showcase of their respective talents. Veloso breezes through hits such as "Você é Linda" before Byrne arrives to give Talking Heads classics such as "Road to Nowhere" a gentle bossa touch, with help from cello and percussion. The pair duet on Veloso's "Ilê Aiyê", horse around on the Heads' "(Nothing But) Flowers", and even on disc a sense of joy and spontaneity is palpable.
