Remembering The Sounds of Brazil on WNUA 95.5 Chicago
25 year ago, it now seems that those first few weeks with WNUA were busy ones. The Sounds of Brazil’s July 25th, 1992 debut was enough of a success for the station and listeners that only a few days later, I was approached by Program Director Lee Hansen with news of an event that the station invited me to host.
“It’s a ‘meet and greet’ for Sergio Mendes and a chance to give The Sounds ...

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. ...

We celebrate Antonio Carlos Jobim’s birthday every January 25th and this year, I’m excited to include it as part of our year-long celebration of Bossa Nova's 60th anniversary.
Being both naturally curious and also a big fan, I’ve written quite a lot about Jobim, his life and his music, but no article was more personally satisfying than this review of the album that Jobim called his favorite.
The occasion was ...

Ahh, Brasil
With sports, it’s soccer. With music it’s the guitar, the single instrument which perfectly complements Brazil’s split personalities: The vast beaches of Rio’s Zona Sul, the vast reaches of the Amazon. The vast richness of blended cultures from Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Six strings, seven strings, electric or acoustic, the Brazilian guitar is symbolic of its people and their cultural his ...
