Spring's slow start won't drag us down this week: There's too much music to enjoy with Astrud Gilberto plus Ivan Lins with Brenda Russell, Jorge Vercilo, Toquinho and tropcial tunes from sax great Leo Gandelman and Caibedo Island. It's Zizi Possi's birthday, too! 


Friday's Brazil Back2Back serves up two tropical tunes just in time for the weeekend. Listen at the top of the hour at 11 am and 2 pm CT, exclusively on our streaming station. Daily Listening Guide.

Sunday's Brazilian Brunch always sets the table for the best part of the weekend with the softer side of Brazilian song and favorite tunes from our earliest days on the air.  Only on Sundays at 9 am and 2 and 8 pm Central time and only on The Sounds of Brazil's streaming station.
