Os Tropies
Os Tropies grew out of the impossibility of travelling back in time. Influenced by the music of the revolutionary tropicália movement of late 1960s Brazil, these six Canadians versed themselves in psychedelic rock and Brazilian popular music in order to imagine what it was like to be a Brazilian music radical in a time of heavy political turmoil and protest song purism.
