Here's an interesting fact: Bebel Gilberto has performed as often in Chicago as she has in Rio de Janeiro: an artistic compliment shared between two of the world's most musical cities. The score will swing in favor of the Windy City on July 30th when Gilberto takes center stage at Ravinia. We'll enjoy a special pre-concert preview this weekend on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch.

The World Cup is over but the Brazilian party will go on—in New York City.
Over nine days beginning July 18, nearly 20 acts representing a cross section of Brazilian popular music will play at venues across the city for the fourth annual Brasil Summerfest (Event Schedule).
The festival may do little to avenge Brazil's spectacular World Cup flame out, but at the very least it will show that the South American country has more than soccer: They still have their samba.

Waiting for the other shoe to drop.
It's part of the human condition and - when it comes to the World Cup - the collective Brazilian psyche. Brazil is the only country to have earned a record five World Cup wins, but in the weeks and days leading up to the 2014 edition, the buzz wasn't about Brazil's winning legacy or even a Latinized version of the American swagger: "Not in our house!"
No, the focus of conversation in the bars, on the beaches and even TV Globo was about the one that got away: Brazil's winner-take-all World Cup match against Uruguay in 1950.
Brazil was the host ...

Even today, as the singer turns the page on another year, the debate rages. Is João Bosco’s avant-garde style of vocal percolation an offshoot of Bossa Nova, or MPB? Or is he really a jazz singer cloaked in the trappings of a uniquely talented troubadour? While the answer may never be fully concluded, the question will always remain easy on the ears.

Ed Motta makes his Chicago debut Thursday, October 16th at Mayne Stage in Rogers Park. The talented singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is a legend in his hometown of Rio de Janeiro, blending a tropical mix of Urban jazz, Brazilian soul and pop in English and Portuguese.
One of my earliest memories of Ed was a chance encounter at Churrascaria Porção in Ipanema one evening. We walked in to meet our guests and there was Ed, playing the grand piano in the entrance lobby. I asked, “Are you performing here tonight?”, and he replied, “No, just ...

"Born on the 4th of July." That's what Brazilian singer Rosalia de Souza can claim. And Marisa Monte was born three days earlier in Rio de Janeiro, across the bay from Rosalia's home town of Niteroi. So it's a double birthday salute for The Sunday Brazilian Brunch.
Monte burst onto the scene in 1989 to redefine Brazilian pop. She's a multi-Grammy winner and she was the face of her nation when Brazil made its global presentation at the close of L ...
