A few years ago, a top label exec in Rio told me, "I think you'll soon see our music being sold in Coke vending machines." He also had a plan to make millions selling Bossa Nova knockoffs to the Chinese.
But if there is a kernel of truth in his vision, it's this: Today, music is everywhere and it's easy to enjoy. There are so many music choices that one song is as good as another, and that makes it difficult for any particular song to stand out ...

Remember that old saying "All that glitters is not gold?" It's true, and Brazil ought to know: it's the largest supplier of precious gemstones in the world. It applies to music, too so I've decided to fill up the playlist with ‘Rare Brazilian Gems’ on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch.
Today, iTunes and Amazon mean that our favorite songs are just a click away. But even though we have access to more music than ever before, you might be sur ...

It's Mother's Day weekend here and in Brazil so we'll celebrate with moms everywhere by presenting an unusual musical showcase. It's a 'moms and daughters (and sons!)' connection with 'Brazil's Superstar Moms' on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch.

Or maybe not so unusual. Many of Brazil's top pop and jazz stars have children following in their footsteps. And if you're a regular listener to The Sounds of Brazil, then you're probably already familiar with many of them.

I won't give away the playlist this we ...

While doing research for last week's Sunday Brazilian Brunch featuring the Brazilian side of Mike and Pat Metheny, I came across this story about Pat's meeting in Rio de Janeiro with guitarist Toninho Horta and singer/songwriter Celia Vaz. In honor of her birthday Sunday, she's our featured Brazil Back2Back artist on The Sounds of Brazil websream for Monday and Tuesday this week.
Celia spent a good deal of time here in the US, before retueing t ...

Since (probably) the beginning of Brazilian time, a friendly competition has existed between Sao Paulo and its coastal cousin, Rio de Janeiro. In fact, it goes beyond the intense rivalries of futebol or even Carnaval to get right to the core of the matter: Sao Paulo is all work and no play. And Rio's beaches are just a big distraction from getting things done. So which city has the best music scene these days?
I'll shed a little light on the subject with 'Sao Paulo Sirens' today on The Sunday Br ...
