Before joining the Tropicália artistic movement, which combined Brazilian artistic traditions with foreign influences, she produced her debut album, Domingo, in 1967. Her 1969 self-titled solo debut is today regarded as a classic of Tropicalismo.

In a 2020 interview, she claimed, “I was born wanting to sing, wanting to be a singer.” “I always imagined myself to be one; I wanted it with all my heart.” Since the day I was born, I have known it.

2021’s Nenhuma Dor was her most recent album.

Brazil experienced a nationwide outpouring of grief upon her passing. Singer-songwriter and former culture minister Gilberto Gil tweeted, “I’m deeply grieved and saddened by the passing of my “sister” @GalCosta.”
