Could this be the scene in Rio next February?
The city’s new mayor – faced with dire financial circumstances after the Olympic circus left town 10 months ago -  is enacting budgetary cuts that could stop Carnaval in its tracks.
It is almost unthinkable, but such is Rio de Janeiro’s reality after corruption, governmental over-spending, political payoffs and a series of ill-timed decisions drained the Carioca coffers.
First ca ...

Ivan Lins turns a musical 72 today and recently was impressed with a tattoo done by a millennial fan from Sao Paulo, who chose the lyrics form one his most famous song to adorn her arm.
Bruna Jardim showed off her new ink on Instagram last week, and Ivan shared it with this message: "People, look how cool this tattoo with a verse of ‘Vieste’ made by Bruna Jardim." That makes me happy, the meaning of the songs embracing people's lives… it’s the first time I&rsqu ...

Anyone who’s closely followed Joao Gilberto’s career over the decades knows of his proclivity for unpredictable behavior. Stories abound, passing from fact to legend.
It’s said that on one occasion, The Father of Bossa Nova made the six-hour drive from Rio de Janeiro to Sao Paulo for a sold-out concert, but changed his mind when he arrived, turned the car around and drove back home.
The promoter and concert-goers found out later.
So it was last month, when New York&rs ...

No more rumors, it’s official: Sergio Mendes is returning to the studio this summer to begin work on his next album. And as speculation begins to swirl around ‘Rio 3’, a featured documentary about the Bossa Master's life is in the works, too.
Details are as muddled as a well-made caipirinha, but this article from Billboard’s Judy Cantor-Navas, continues: “Mendes is renowned as the man who put go-go boots on Brazilian music and brought it to the w ...

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 ...

The Music: Tropicalia is undeniably one of the most misunderstood and misidentified forms of Brazilian pop music.
Tropicalia (aka Tropicália or Tropicálismo) is undeniably one of the most misunderstood and misidentified forms of Brazilian pop music. Much of the confusion comes from the seeds of its creation and from the mostly unstructured desire of Brazil's youth generation of the late 60s to make an indelible cultural statement of its own.
Beyond the impetus ...
