The Sounds of Brazil's streaming station makes workdays a breeze: Listen to The Midday Show, 9 am Central!

A year or two ago last week, Bebel Gilberto posted the picture below on Instagram, writing "Me and Dad. Amor! Immense Saudade! Thinking of you, counting the days until your birthday,"
Bebel is riding high with the success of her latest album 'Tudo' while her father – who is also the Father of Bossa Nova, and husband first to Astrud and now  Bebel’s mom, Miucha – will celebrate his 85th birthday today, on Friday, June 10th.

Make workdays a breeze! The Midday Show, 9 am Central

 

 

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 ...

While doing research for last week's Sunday Brazilian Brunch featuring the Brazilian side of Mike and Pat Metheny, I came across this story about Pat's meeting in Rio de Janeiro with guitarist Toninho Horta and singer/songwriter Celia Vaz. In honor of her birthday Sunday, she's our featured Brazil Back2Back artist on The Sounds of Brazil websream for Monday and Tuesday this week.
Celia spent a good deal of time here in the US, before retueing t ...

Winter's final day remonds us that ‘spring’ is much more than a meteorological event. For those of us here in Chicago and coast-to coast, Spring’s arrival early tomorrow morning includes a “free pass” to the sunshine season.
And what better way to set the table for The Sunday Brazilian Brunch than with a ‘Brazilian Bouquet’ of season-changing favorites. It’s my hand-picked selection of breezy Brazilian jazz, budding musicians and more. And that’s better t ...

Cafezinho: Next Stop Wonderland

by Brazil Club - Let The Music Take You There on 12/05/2013 - 09:56 pm

Earlier this week on The Sounds of Brazil, I mentioned that the 1998 movie ‘Next Stop Wonderland’ is playing now through the end of January on Flix and The Movie Channel. Perfect timing to forget about winter’s chill for awhile.
Although most reviews pass on the soundtrack’s leading role, this is a not-to-be-missed movie for Bossa Nova fans and a must-have album, too.
A Sundance Film Festival winner, ‘Next Stop Wonderland’ is a something of a romantic comedy centered on a not-completely-together single woman who lives her life to a Bossa Nova soundtrack. And she’s surrounded by a world of circumstance that decidedly does not.
Director Brad Anders ...

Chicago Welcomes Maira Rita to City W...

by Brazil Club - Let The Music Take You There on 10/29/2013 - 05:47 pm

Brazilian music fans in Chicago will welcome Maria Rita to the City Winery stage on February 5th and 6th 2014.
 
Additional dates will no doubt be added in the coming days and we will post venues for New York, Washington DC and South Florida on this page as soon as they are finalized.
In addition to having lived eight years in New York, Maria Rita had to prepare herself for a future of enormous responsibility. Perhaps her greatest challenge was to rise above the natural comparisons to her mother, Elis Regina, one of the all-time greatest singers of Brazilian popular music. But Maria Rita’s talent stands as testament to her own well-earned success: She won a Latin Grammy trifect ...

Who is she: Her father’s daughter
Why Is she important: Still Brazil’s reining Diva
 
One fan might have summed it up best last night during the ‘after set’ for Bebel Gilberto at Chicago’s City Winery: “It’s a universal vibe. It’s like we’re all friends through her music but nobody knows each other and so we all just seem get together whenever she’s here.”
Totally in keeping with Bebel’s unique ability to connect with a crowd. Opening with ‘Traquilo’ from her Momento album, she absorbed th ...

Cafezinho: Never Say Neve!

by Brazil Club - Let The Music Take You There on 07/25/2013 - 11:33 am

What happened: A snow storm… in Brazil?
Why Is It Important: For many it was a once in a lifetime event, the first in more than 40 years.
 

The south of Brazil can get quite chilly in the dead of winter this time of year, but pretty much everyone – even the weather reporters – was taken by surprise earlier this week when snow covered the ground in Curitiba, to the depth of several inches. In fact, more than 140 cities in southern Brazil reported snow as children and adults took a ‘snow day’ to experience the rare and wonderful opportunity to slip, slide and build snowmen, leaving many to think that perhaps it’s best to leave global warming to th ...
