Winning Field of Brazilian Nominees F...

by Brazil Club - Let The Music Take You There on 09/26/2012 - 09:52 pm

Nominations for this year's Latin Grammy awards have been announced and the number of Brazilian music candidates has improved from recent years, with solid nominations for Album, Record and Song Of The Year. And while very few of the albums nominated in the Brazilian category have made their way north of the equator, 2012's field is rich with worthy contenders from the land of Samba and sun. 
The list includes a Techo Brega Diva, a brace of MPB superstars, an overdue nod for a talented producer and a sprinkling of 'ready for prime time' high risers.
However, the Latin Grammy Awards have restructured the musical categories and the result is that Brazil's rich musical diversity has been ...

The Sounds of Brazil! Returns to Chicago Radio with 90.9 FM WDCB
Wednesday, September 26, 2012
 
Hello,
I’m very pleased to announce that on Wednesday, October 3rd (one week from today), The Sounds of Brazil! will make its 7 pm debut on its new Chicago radio home -  listener supported 90.9 FM, WDCB.

The ‘prime time’ move is part of The Sounds of Brazil’s 20th anniversary celebration, which bega ...

What do some of the country’s greatest race tracks and Ballroom dancing have in common? Well, for starters, some basics: Left, right, left.
"Keep the frame," Helio Castroneves laughs as he prepares for an afternoon of "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" rehearsal with his professional dance partner, Chelsie Hightower, in a utilitarian studio out of the public eye in Hollywood, Calif.
The phrase is one of the few - but certainly among the most important - the IZOD IndyCar Series driver remembers from his autumn 2007 run as the show's champion with partner Julianne Hough. Appel, ball-change, spot turn -- the ballroom dancing terms were replaced by a racing lexicon to allow the Team Pe ...

Milwaukee’s established contribution to Brazilian cuisine has closed its doors while we introduce you to a true Latin American gem just a few blocks away.
We’ve been fascinated with Milwaukee’s restaurant scene for decades; first it was Elsa’s on the Park with its trendy bar (cool caipirinhas!), unbeatable sandwiches and the fact the restaurant would transform its entire look every few months with a different artistic theme. Then there came Louise’s Trattoria just a few doors down for Italian with homemade breads, sauces and pastas. The Zagat-rated Karl Ratzsch’s with its Bavarian decor and some of the finest German cooking anywhere. The stalwart Mason St ...
