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 studio 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.
