Os Mutantes

Spotlight show • On Beck’s superb 1998 album “Mutations,” the track “Tropicalia” stood out for good reason: It was inspired by Os Mutantes, the Brazilian psychedelic rockers associated with the Tropicália movement of the late 1960s. The movement blended traditional Brazilian culture with foreign influences — notably rock music of America and Britain. The band dissolved in 1978, but regrouped in 2006 after influential tastemakers such as Kurt Cobain and David Byrne mentioned how much Os Mutantes had inspired them.
