Open please.
Traditional / Samba / Bossa Nova

(1973)
Another dance-y track.
With disco funky vibes complete with key change.

Thats it, Hope you enjoyed your virtual Brazilian music journey,
From the 70s to now,

back to portfolio SPK

An example of a more typical Brazilian "Funk" track,
In typical dancehall style, the music video represents the big ass.
I'm pretty sure thats what the lyrics are about as well.
Anyway besides the pop style acoustic guitar i enjoy this.

Besides the Jewish style dance interludes, I actually quite like this song,
the beat is nice, and very simple.
if you watch the music video with this girl you'll be shocked,
She's very fat and full on, and has actually only two songs,

The last three tracks are Brazilian "Funk" tracks,
A very popular style here, it started in the Favelas, originating from actual funk,
but now is completely different, it doesn't relate to real funk at all.
Anyway you have to give them a chance,
Wait for the drop and listen to the rhythms and instruments etc,
Could be interesting to study.

I really like this one, and the reggae influence is quite clear,
I also think it has a kind of sound of Manu Chao

Baiana System are an interesting group,
mixing traditional Brazilian sounds with reggae dub and rap.

Another dance track,
With nice samples and instruments, creating a cool beat
plus with more chanting, it almost sounds of African influence as well.
(e = and)

I like the chanting sample used in this.
A nice mix of sounds and genres.
His english a little rough but sweet because on soundcloud he says
"music from brasil to the globes Xx"

I would describe this as Brazilian dubstep,
Its quite nice and vibe-y, with some house style samples,
you can hear the Rhythm and Sound style beat,
But with a rattle and carnival drum near the end
and voice speaking in Portuguese

(2005)
Back to recorded tracks,
This is a really interesting group who create all sounds with their mouths,
(When I first heard the intro i thought it would be a psytrance track)
There are some nice remixes of this song around,
Particularly amusing is the one by CloZee

More resent - a short clip of a the repetitive instrumental.
Another example of beats and sounds.
These guys are a group but also have a "bloco" for carnival.

Typical Carnival Batucada - An instrumental,
Thought you would like the rhythms and drums,
They walk around with drums around their necks and whistles in their mouths

(1972)
In true upbeat Samba style,
The second from this artist, and from the same album.
The whole album is really nice, called "Acabou Chorare"

(1973)
Another dance-y track.
With disco funky vibes complete with key change.

(1971)
Cool beats of what sounds like coconut husks
and a frying pan.

(1972)
Super nice upbeat track, with some scatting and a female vocalist,
This track is my current favourite song,
it makes you dance or shake your shoulders / head / feet etc

(1972)
Particularly like the line,
"I walk down Portobello road to the sound of reggae, I'm Alive"
Both Caetano tracks from the really cool album "Transa"

(1970)
From a really great album, Tocou Novamente
The other song worth checking out is "Apareceu Aparecida"

(1975)
Tim Maia is the most famous artist in Brazil who crossed over into funk.
This was my first favourite Brazilian song when I first moved.
I also like "O Caminho do Bem"

(1970)
Very smooth, satisfying and still somewhat upbeat.
With an interesting array of instruments that forms the rhythm.

(1972)
The first of two songs by the artist.
He lived in London for a while which is why he sings sometimes
in English or about London places or streets.

(1976)
Samba with an oboe,
Already you can hear these typical squeaky sounds
that typically come into upbeat Brazilian styles

(1974)
From the really nice Bossa Nova album Elis & Tom.
Other favourites from the album and worth checking are,
"Só Tinha de Ser com Você"
and "Triste" (has a cool elevator music style opening)

(1972)
Bit more of a Brazilian soul-y disco vibe.

(2000)
A kind of pop, chilled samba.

A two part playlist (2 disc CD comp) of Brazilian music.
From Samba and Bossa Nova to Carnival Batucada (drum beats)
and Brazilian "funk" - which isn't really funk at all,
but something more like the Brazilian Dancehall.

Live - for an example of the true carnival style.
In Rio it makes up the famous carnival parades,
or you will find "blocos", Notinghill style trucks with speakers and
dancers on top,leading the crowds around the city like this.
