Gilberto Gil (also commonly referred to as Gilberto Gil (Frevo Rasgado)[4] to differentiate it from Gil's other self-titled releases) is the second album by Gilberto Gil, originally released in early 1968.[1] The album features a blending of traditional Brazilian styles such as samba and bossa nova with American rock and roll.[4] It also mixes Rogério Duprat's orchestral arrangements with the electric guitars of Brazilian rock group Os Mutantes.

The album is number 78 on Rolling Stone Brasil's List of 100 greatest Brazilian albums of all time. The magazine also voted the track "Domingo no Parque" as the 11th greatest Brazilian song.[5]
