With the Olympics in Rio on everybody’s mind, this week’s Beat Latino shares a sampler of some of the sounds from Brazil that have enchanted, romanced, swayed and moved us! From classics like Girl from Ipanema to Sao Paolo’s songstress Luisa Maita’s very latest, passing through Bossacucanova’s pioneering electro-samba beats and Tom-Ze’s proto-hip hop grooves, we also spend some time with classic Latin American tunes given gentle Brazilian twists by masters Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso. Enjoy!
