Putumayo – Brasileiro
Music on this CD offers just the juice itself from the Brazilian musical festival. Some of the composers represented here are famous in Brazil. Others are little known. The name of this collection, Brasileiro, means simply “Brazilian”. This is a tribute to people whose musical passions and creativity are unsurpassed.
Music in Brazil is more than just entertainment. This is a soundtrack to life, a constant rhythm and melody atmosphere that enriches and supports people through accompanying them in failure and happiness. Carnival, the noisy bacchanalia that takes place every year in February is an eruption of a musical volcano, but for the rest of the year the rhythms of samba, bossa nova, MPB (Brazilian Pop music), forro, pagode and countless other styles are constantly airing their vibrations. They can be heard from the stereo in a taxi, from the window of small rural houses, from rusty loudspeakers on the beach of cantinas or in improvised jam music sessions on the streets. Brasileiro recorded this atmosphere and you can bring it to your house.

Proposed for acquaintance
Brasiliero, a wonderfully diverse introduction to Brazilian music, is a sophisticated blend of folk-pop and cool jazz, as embraced by artists both well and little known, in the most popular styles: samba, bossa nova, and MBP (musica popular Brasileiro). As with Cuban music, the greatest influence on Brazilian music came from African slaves who were imported to farm sugar, tobacco, and cotton plantations. With that influence comes a complex rhythmic structure and a prevailing sense of melancholy. Bearing this out, “Daca de Solidao” (“Dance of Solitude”) is deliciously thick as performed by the dusky-voiced Beth Carvalho. Chico Cesar’s “Mama Africa” is a perfect sociopolitical pop hit, blending hard-hitting lyrics with bouncy percussion and Jamaican reggae. Other standouts include Jorge Ben’s wiggly feel-good romp “O Namorado da Viuva” (“The Widow’s Boyfriend”) and Joao Bosco’s dancing guitar on “Vatapa,” which pays homage to the traditional dish of the same name.
