Most of us, stateside that is, got introduced to Brazilian music thru bossa novas, current smooth jazz, "The Girl From Ipanema" & the wonderful compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim, which probably led us to believe that all Brazilian music was light, breezy & tropical. We didn't realize that there was a plethora of Brazilian artist that inspired much of our American artist & bands especially artist like Earth, Wind & Fire, Rufus, War & many many more. So this episode is dedicated to the soulful, deeper, funkier & jazzier side of Brazil. The mix include music from some artist that received great popularity stateside like Tania Maria, Sergio Mendes, Azymuth & Flora Purim as well as KILLER bands that have been heavily sampled (unbeknowst to some) in the hiphop & dance world & some of my personal favorites.
