▶ Gilberto Gil - "Expresso 2222" (TV Globo, 1972) - YouTube
"Quando voltaram do exílio londrino, em março de 72, Gilberto Gil e Caetano Veloso fizeram um show no Teatro Municipal do Rio. O espetáculo foi gravado e exibido pela TV Globo dentro da faixa "Sexta Nobre".

Neste vídeo, Gil mostra ao público uma canção ainda inédita, "Expresso 2222", um grande sucesso que daria nome ao disco que ele gravaria em seguida."

Romance and Revolt: A Tropicália Playlist | Station to Station
"Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto created a nomadic sculpture for Station to Station. He identified the following three songs as Tropicália at its best.

“Tropicália had been very important,” Ernesto Neto told Station to Station. “It brings this idea of American pop, or English pop or rock ‘n’ roll” to Brazil.

It’s also, Neto points out, an embodiment of Brazil’s rich blend of cultures: “Brazil is a mix. [The Spanish settlers] made love to the Indians, then the Africans came. It’s a mix. There’s a sexual interaction, and this sexual interaction had been very mixed on the culture, too.”

This combustible mix resulted in Tropicália, a popular movement that took root in Brazil in the mid-1960s. Characterized by a combination of the popular and the avant-garde, Tropicália encompassed art forms such as theatre and poetry, but it found its broadest expression in music, bringing figures like Gilberto Gil and Os Mutantes, Caetano Veloso and Tom Zé to the world stage."
