Being one of the most diverse and mixed countries in the globe, Brazil has developed an impressive array of musical styles that blend traditions of American, European and African origin in different proportions and configurations. This mix focuses on the influence of African culture in Brazil’s own folklore and its further proliferation onto the most sophisticated spheres of their musical institutions.
These songs showcase beautifully arranged orchestras, stripped down ensembles and full-on massive percussion “blocos”. They have the capacity to make you cry and feel an urgent will to celebrate life at the same time.
Selected by Alex Figueira. All songs taken from original vinyl records.
