Award-winning musical talent Gilberto Gil was born in the northeast of Brazil and began playing music at a young age.
His musical style focused on bossa nova, but was later influenced by sounds from around the world.
As one of the key artists in the "tropocalia" movement in the 1960s, his success threatened the Brazilian military government, which led to his exile.
He says: "They were concerned about the influence that we could have and we are starting to have over the young generation … and they couldn't just bury it."
Soon after, Gilberto Gil's story and unique musical blends gained popularity with international audiences and he has continued to tour globally ever since.
This episode of One on One aired from Saturday, September 4, 2010.
