Check out this podcast I did a little while ago...brazilian tropicalia, samba, funk ect.

Some other heads might've mentioned them, but I'd say if your starting to dive into brazilian joints, Gal Costa, Jorge Ben, & Azumuth are good starting points. it depends on which style you like, bossa nova (Tom Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Ellis Regina, ect), or samba (Cartola, Os Novos Baianos, ect), in general, i love brazilian music...it's got it's own unique rhythm.

hermeto pascoal...azymuth....joyce.............for some decent new stuff seu jorge is good.


azymuth are actually still making records. i'm not their biggest fan, you need to pitch their records down just a bit ;)

of all the traditional music, i'm a huge fan of jorge ben, gal costa, ceila reis, marisa monte, quarteto em cy, o povo canta, golden boys (oh, i could go on..)

i maybe shouldn't promote compilations, but those two gilles peterson in brazil cds are actually very good. he's showcasing some stuff even i didn't know!

^^agreed^^

Aside from Os Mutantes and the other jazz/psych stuff mentioned previously, I also enjoy Seu Jorge's "Life Aquatic Sessions". If youve seen the movie, Seu Jorge is the dude singing the Bowie covers in Portugese. I detest 99.5% of records by solo singers with accoustic guitars and no drums , but if your a Bowie fan, its cool to hear his songs given a Brazilian treatment.

I went to Brazil in February, I wish i could have found more spots, had brought my crate, had researched what to get more, and had more time to dig but I did come home with about 40 records all of them are good to great.

Some of the Brazilian stuff I bought was...

Jorge ben
Luiz bonfa
Tim Maia
Tom ze
Gilberto gil
Gal costa
Azymuth
Joao donato
Tom jobim
Antonio carlos Jobim
Beth carvalho

I also bought some other stuff american stuff for cheap and some stuff I cant remember because I bought it just cause it looked good.

I am surprised Deodato hasnt came up but I would say Azymuth is my favorite Brazilian group/artist just cause I havent really heard anyone who sounds like them? Can anybody suggest any groups/artists who have a similar sound to azymuth

i lived in brazil for a couple of years... lots and lots of great music, as much as the USA (and we know they got some worthwile stuff to listen through).

my favourites are:

Tim Maia - earlier stuff. songs like "azul da cor do mar", "pelo amor de deus", "rodesia", "eu amo voce"... and the "tim maia racional" albums... "que beleza"!!!

Jorge Ben - albums from the 60s... and "A banda do Ze Pretinho"

Baden Powell e Vinicius - afro-sambas

and you should really give Chico Science & Nação Zumbi's "Da Lama Ao Caos" a chance...
mixing african drums and rock, its also a masterpiece.

Chico Buarque is more rewarding lyrically I think, but he made one album with Ennio Morricone that's cool...


the drum n bass of DJ Patife is really nice, he mixes a lot with samba...
and Marcelo D2 mixes rap with samba and its ok...

but Brazil got some really, really good, traditional, sample-based but still very unique boom-bap:

Rappin Hood, Sabotagem, Racionais MCs are the ones I prefer... all their releases are really, really good... Racionais MCs going back all the way to the late 80s.... always quality material.

1) don't post 3 videos at the same time, its too much to watch
2) try to put them all in one post...

its not a contest of who can post the most music
the point is to comment and discuss, then post music
