A statue honoring Brazilian singer-composer Antonio Carlos ‘Tom’ Jobim was unveiled Wednesday (10th) at the Zona Sul beach where it all began for the Bossa Nova beat back in the late 1950’s.
Located midway along Ipanema’s stretch of sun-soaked sand, and situated casually upon its black and white tiled mosaic sidewalk, the 200 kilo bronze statue depicting Jobim with a guitar slung over his shoulder to mark the 20th anniversary of Jobim’s passing. ‘I chose to represent a young and handsome Tom Jobim showing him at the peak of his success in t ...

How elemental is music to the Brazilian way of life? Here’s a story: In 1989, W/Brasil (a top ad agency) rolled out a brand new campaign for Rider Sandals and the big star was the music featured in TV spots.
The idea was to showcase Brazilian Pop stars recreating favorite hit songs. The first was with Paralamas do Sucesso doing Jorge Ben’s ‘País Tropical’. Marina Lima came up with a new version of a Rita Lee tune. In 1993, Tim Maia - who was already a big fan of Rider sandals - recreated Lulu Santos’ and Nelson Motta’s ‘Como Uma Onda&rsquo ...

October 17th is ‘Dia da MPB’ in Brazil
In keeping with the largely feminine nature of Brazilian song, the day commemorates the birth of pianist Chiquinha Gonzaga in 1847. She is widely regarded by cultural scholars as the first popular songwriter of Brazil.
MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira) has its roots in samba but has grown to encompass and loosely define a variety of musical styles. Chiquinha composed several songs that today are part of the Brazilian cultural universe, including the samba marcinha 'Abre Alas'.
In past decades MPB has included early pioneers of Br ...

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 ...

Breaking News:
Mayne Stage in Rogers Park has announced a new date for Ed Motta's Chicago debut: Thursday October 16th.  With only days ahead of his original August date, Motta reluctantly was forced to postpone his US Tour - including his Chicago debut - due to visa issues worldwide and "computer problems" in Washington DC (haven't we heard this before?). Here's the story from the Wall Street Journal, and Ed Motta's instagram from August.
Now everyone is looking forward to Ed Motta's Chicago show, one night only, on Thursday October 16th.

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.
