Ever imagined hang-gliding above Copacabana and Ipanema? Well, now you can, thanks to Ayrton Camargo, who for the past 25 years or so who has had the pleasure of photographing Rio de Janeiro for fun and profit.
Talk about a cushy job… heck, Rio’s beauty literally cries out for a camera.

Cafezinho: Never Say Neve!

by Brazil Club - Let The Music Take You There on 07/25/2013 - 11:33 am

What happened: A snow storm… in Brazil?
Why Is It Important: For many it was a once in a lifetime event, the first in more than 40 years.

The south of Brazil can get quite chilly in the dead of winter this time of year, but pretty much everyone – even the weather reporters – was taken by surprise earlier this week when snow covered the ground in Curitiba, to the depth of several inches. In fact, more than 140 cities in southern Brazil reported snow as children and adults took a ‘snow day’ to experience the rare and wonderful opportunity to slip, slide and build snowmen, leaving many to think that perhaps it’s best to leave global warming to th ...

by Brazil Club - Let The Music Take You There on 07/14/2013 - 01:00 pm

Maybe it was the hot sand, or maybe the Brazilian spirits really did move John Travolta last week during a commercial shoot for a popular Brazilian rum in Rio de Janeiro.
Has someone been testing the product?
Brazil Club can tell you that John Travolta looked in his element Wednesday, gleefully cutting a rug on the Rio de Janeiro set of a commercial he was shooting for a Brazilian rum maker.
Barefoot on the beach and wearing striped lounging pants and a black T-shirt, the smiling Oscar-nominated actor showed off his dance moves for the camera.
And while those moves weren't quite the caliber of the ones that launched his career in Saturday Night Fever and Grease, Travolta seemed to be hav ...

Copacabana Beach

Each week, The Sounds of Brazil! broadcasts the very best in Brazilian music, and we always try to compliment our weekly focus with an eye-catching image to help spark your imagination (and make you smile!).
For this week’s Beach Blanket Bossa radio program, we didn’t have to look far: it turns out that the artist for this wonderful painting lives in coastal Florida, as a very creative member of our Brazilian–American community.
Brazilian-born, Ana Bondarenko-Machado started painting at the age of 12, and exhibiting her creations at 16 years old. Inspired by her travels, nature and architectural appreciation, Ana's paintings convey a powerful sense of an emotional ...
