The Brazil women's soccer team may be out of the Olympics, but that won't put a damper on this Sunday's Brasilfest at the Seattle Center… and it didn't rain on this radio show either. We heard all manner of Brazilian music, from forro to funk, for some two-thirds of the show. Plus new releases and more in hour 2. (That photo, by the way, is an LP cover of forro pioneer Luiz Gonzaga. Google him.)
It's gonna be a sizzling weekend ('bout time!) here in Cascadia. Stay cool, have fun … and as always, live locally and groove globally until next Friday's show.
