Different In Brazil
It was a simple question that brought an unexpected response, and it came at the end of dinner with a music label exec in Rio de Janeiro. As we capped off our meal with a few fingers of aged sipping cachaça I asked, “When it comes to the rest of the world, what do you think is Brazil’s most popular music?”
He replied without hesitation: “Samba. It’s always Samba.”
His answer surprised me, not ...

Pit Stop
A pair of Indy 500 winners from Brasil were on the move from Miami in a big way earlier this week.
2013 winner Tony Kanaan’s first IndyCar race came on the Homestead, Florida oval for the Miami Grand Prix in 1998 and he’s competed in every season since, but a few days ago he was behind the wheel for a different kind of long distance run: north, and away from the approaching hurricane Irma.
Racer’s Robin Miller reports: “With ...

2017's NFL Kickoff
Opening weekend for the NFL’s 2017 season is underway and Thursday night’s kickoff for the very first game came off the foot of a Brazilian, Kansas City Chiefs kicker, Cairo Fernandes Santos.
A unique asterisk in the annals of NFL history, but not the only one. You see, Santos is the only Brazilian on the roster of any team for the NFL.
Born in Limeira, São Paulo Santos was first introduced to American football as a fore ...

Goin' Old School
This month’s radio theme for The Sounds of Brazil is ‘BossaNovaville’ and if there is a single, ‘real world’ symbol of Bossa Nova’s story in Rio de Janeiro, it’d probably be those iconic black and white-tiled sidewalks that stretch across the city; especially in Rio’s Zona Sul. After all, that’s where Bossa Nova began in the late 50’s.
Gaze along Copacabana’s graceful cur ...

Retracing Brazilian music back to its American roots.
It’s true: music is often culture’s best ambassador between nations and for Brazil and America, I think that only one album which qualifies to be at the top of a very impressive list.

"At first, its almost as if they were playing it safe for this debut CD. Then you’re in over you head with its depth."

It’s been quite awhile since Brazil has poised a musical “supergroup.” We can think back to the 70’s with Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Maria Bethania and Gal Costa, or perhaps Milton Nascimento’s ‘Clube da Esquinha’ projects or even more recently from the Brazilian Jazz wor ...
