Caetano Veloso's Abraçaço is the final album in the trilogy that began with Cê in 2006 and continued with Zii e Zie in 2010. These recordings aren't related conceptually, but musically. He collaborated with the same trio of younger players from the Carioca pop fringe – guitarist Pedro Sá (who co-produced the set with Veloso's son Moreno), drummer Marcelo Callado, and bassist Ricardo Dias. These songs are rangey, full of compelling sounds and unexpected dynamic and textural shifts. The word "abraçaço" is Portuguese for "big hug."
