Paulinho Garcia brings Brazil Club fans up to date with his latest project - the 100th anniversary tribute to Brazilian pop songwriter, Noel Rosa. He writes: On December 11, 2010 we’ll be producing a concert honoring our “Poeta da Vila - Poet of the Vila”, Noel Rosa. The event will be at the International House of the University of Chicago. We will build the stage set to resemble a bar from the 1920’s Vila Isabel, all in wood. The musicians will perform seated around tables as in a typical Carioca bar scene. The repertoire will include a selection of the best works of Noel interpreted by the great names of Chicago’s Brazilian artists.

Experience! / Review: ‘The Party In T...

Kenia is a contemporary jazz legend and a Brazilian American sensation with a talent that embodies the best of the modern Brazilian sound: a romantic cross between pop, Bossa and classic MPB that plays well with a tapestry of Brazilian influences.  Her 1987 album Initial Thrill was the first of several recordings to ride the New Age wave and it established her as one of the early favorites of the crossover genre. Busy with her US tour, Brazil Club caught up with her to pose these 10 Questions.

IN Muisc / Review: Toco's 'Outro Lugar'

by Brazil Club - Let The Music Take You There on 07/04/2012 - 03:31 pm

Beautiful Bossas and svelte Sambas form the basis for Toco and his sophomore follow up to ‘Instalação do Samba’. The sessions were recorded in Rio with production by S-Tone, and feature some wonderful acoustic guitar play from the legendary Roberto Menescal. His presence here really helps give the record a classic Bossa feel – there’s a distinct reflection of the true nature of the original Bossa beat, but with an updated style that keeps it fresh, without resorting to clichés.
