Brazilian music should be a huge part of anyone’s summer soundtrack. So excited that Red Hot + Rio 2 was released this week. Of course, you can find it on iTunes but thought I would share some music so that way your day can feel less like a carnival and more like Carnival!
Here is Marisa Monte – the Brazilian pop goddess!
Here is Bebel Gilberto. I chose Momento because it gives clips of her as a child with her parents (the famous Joao Gilberto and Astrud Gilberto — Girl from Ipanema)
Last but not least is Caetano Veloso – the Bob Dylan of Brazilian music. Instead of choosing an original composition, here is an interesting cover.
