Os Mutantes – Quem Tem Medo De Brincar De Amor

Ever wonder what the Beatles would sound like if they joined forces with Frank Zappa? …and spoke Portuguese? Check out this song by Os Mutantes from São Paulo, Brazil. They were part of the Tropicália movement in Brazil which arose in the late 1960’s.

Joao Gilberto / Stan Getz – Pra Machucar Meu Coração

If I haven’t said it already, I’ll say it now – Getz/Gilberto is one of my favorite albums of all time and I will probably post every song on the album at some point. “Pra Machucar Meu Coração” is my favorite song on the album but I am a little biased because I translated it and learned it on guitar a couple years ago before I traveled to Brazil. Let me know what you think!

Jorge Ben – Umbabarauma

We have been posting a lot of Brazilian music lately but everyone is loving it so why stop? I originally heard this song on a Brazilian music compilation album put out by David Byrne as his “musical love letter to Brazil.” Actually, that compilation, Beleza Tropical Brazil Classics 1, is without question one of my top ten favorite albums. “Umbabarauma” is the first song on that compilation.

CéU – Samba Na Sola

CéU is a Brazilian musician from São Paulo whose music is influenced by a diverse set of genres including samba, valsa, choro, soul, rhythm and blues, hip hop, afrobeat and electrojazz music. This particular song is a samba off of her album Vagarosa. The entire album is very diverse so even if you don’t love this samba, you’ll probably find something you really like on the album.
