Yahoo! Music News - Wed, 06/17/2015 - 15:14

Brazilian musicians Caetano Veloso (L) and Gilberto Gil play a guitar at Gil's music studio in Rio de Janeiro, on June 15, 2015Five decades after galvanizing the Brazilian music scene with the "Tropicalia" movement, Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso are going back on tour, older and wiser but still border-blurring troubadours. Gil, a politically engaged musical ambassador who once served as Brazil's culture minister, and Veloso, a wispy, gender-bending poet with a sublimely mellow voice, have been friends and collaborators since 1963. Caetano and Gil, as they are popularly known, shook the foundations of Brazilian music in the 1960s with Tropicalia, which blended the South American nation's samba and bossa nova sounds with rock-and-roll beats, electric guitars and psychedelic experimentalism.

A new music streaming service in Japan is aiming to make a dent in the world's second-largest music marketA new music streaming service in Japan is aiming to make a dent in the world's second-largest music market, but it could face a tough challenge from the undisputed king of the sector -- the good old compact disc. While digital music now eclipses CD sales in the United States, Japanese music lovers tend to be big on showing off their disc collections -- e-books have also struggled -- and the industry is heavily geared toward sales of physical media. This week, mobile messaging giant Line said it was going where others including Sony and games giant DeNA had failed, with a streaming service that offers unlimited access to a collection of more than 1.5 million songs for 1,000 yen (US$8) a month.
