Take A Musical Journey to Brazil

July 2, 2013 Artist News No Comments

SpanningTheGlobe_BRAZIL_playlistSince Brazil has been very much in the global spotlight lately (and no doubt will continue to be for the foreseeable future), we thought we might compile a sampler of a few of our favorite Brazilian or Brazil-inspired artists.

The tracks below run the gamut from Classic Samba to Contemporary Baile Funk. Highlights include “Nobody Can Live Forever,” a vintage classic by 1970’s Brazilian Funk/Soul superstar Tim Maia, whose extraordinary story is told in this short animated feature narrated by Devandra Banhart; the mellow “Samba É Tudo” from renowned singer/guitarist Celso Fonseca and his frequent collaborator, composer Ronaldo Bastos; a Pitbull-assisted remix of Brazilian sertaneja star Michel Teló ‘s 2010 smash hit “Ai Se Eu Te Pego,” which sold 16 million copies worldwide, reached #1 in 18 countries and made Teló the first Brazlian artist to hit the Billboard “Hot 100″ since Sergio Mendes; UK producer Sao Benitez’ English-language re-imagining of the Juca Chaves favorite “Take Me Back To Piaui;” and a 1971 recording of Dorival Caymmi‘s bossa nova classic “Das Rosas” by famed singer Maria Creuza.
