Kaka has been sparsely used by Jose Mourino at Real this season but featured for Brazil in comfortable friendly wins over Iraq and Japan last month.
In-form Lucas Moura, who is joining big-spending French side Paris Saint Germain in January, and Santos starlet Neymar, are also included as is Brazil captain Thiago Silva and Hulk of Zenit St Petersburg.
Missing from coach Mano Menezes' list were Ronaldinho of Atletico Mineiro and the two top scorers in the domestic league, Fred and Luis Fabiano, who have been spared to allow them to concentrate on the Brazilian league title.
The 2014 World Cup hosts face Colombia in New Jersey on November 14.
