It is impossible to deny the influence that Brazil has on today’s global culture. From music and film to fashion and dance, Brazil has become one of the world’s most important resources of popular art and entertainment. Brazilian Lounge is a collection featuring the sultry voices and urban grooves of many of Brazil’s finest contemporary musicians.
Brazilian Lounge will take the listener to the contemporary bars and lounges of Rio and Sao Paulo, where a new generation of musicians is reinvigorating the classic sounds of samba and bossa nova. Tri-lingual liner notes include a recipe for a caipirinha cocktail, provided by Sagatiba, enabling you to quench your thirst Brazilian style.
A portion of Putumayo’s proceeds from the sale of this CD will be donated to Rukha, a non-profit organization working to change the current condition of street children in Brazil.
