PUTUMAYO MUSIC Women of Brazil CD
Write a review
Experience alluring samba, bossa nova and more by a young generation of rising stars and new discoveries.
Women of Brazil chronicles the rising stars and established voices of a scene as prolific as it is innovative, from philosophical sambas (Aline Morales’s “Pra Que Sambar”) to gentle electronic sounds, from the sway of bossa nova (Clara Moreno’s “Balanço Zona Sul”) to reggae vibes (Flavio Coehlo’s “A Foto”). The musicians featured on this album take the music of greats like Caetano Veloso and Jorge Ben, and create their own unique interpretations - or craft clever new songs, often with a wink to the classic Brazilian songbook. -World Music Wire
