The Old Year Was A New Year:  Was 2017 a reboot for Brazilian music? Many think so. A strong move back to major label signings thanks to the return of singles: the strength of an expressive song with a great story; personal creativity turning once again to Brazil’s wealth of world-class production and promotion. Social media is driving Indie success like never before in Brazil.
 
Here’s the bes ...

Raise A Cup of Christmas Cheer to Oscar
I’ll happily admit that I enjoy creating every weekly program for The Sounds of Brazil!; a lot of thought and care is put into each one. But our annual ‘Brazilian Christmas’ show is ultimately one of my favorites, and this December marks its 23rd consecutive year.

Review: Milton Nascimento's 'Courage'

Time Machine
Rio de Janeiro, October 22, 1967. We’re in the studio audience at TV Globo, Brazil’s top network, just in time to catch the balloting results for the 2nd International Festival of Song competition. Gutemberg Guarabira wins, going on to become a footnote in the history of MPB while a young songwriter by the name of Milton Nascimento claims second place, along with the prize for ‘best performance’ with his song ‘Travessia’ (Bridges).
He survives some pretty stiff competiton from a songwriting field that includes Chico Buarque, Sergio Mendes and Dori Caymmi. He also survives the judges – all but one were prepared to cut him after the firs ...

1967's Summer of Love turned out to be Brazil’s winter of discontent. This week, you can catch our streaming special on one of the most important years in Brazilian music. 

The Year That Changed Everything
Few years resonate with more energy and contrast that 1967 in Brazil, and for those who follow such things (like us, for example), it’s a year that could be easily overlooked at first glance.
After all, the years that gr ...
