Mix: Brazilian Beauties Vol 1


Right, this blog has been dormant for far too long, so to kick-start it back into life I’m going to re-post the Brazilian Beauties mixes I did while living in Brazil from 2005 to 2009. I knew next to nothing about Brazilian music when I arrived there, but after many a long afternoon digging in dusty record shops or at Sunday flea-markets I began to develop a taste for the sound of Jorge Ben, Marcos Valle and lesser known guys like Antonio Carlos & Jocafi. Suffice to say that, even after four years of fairly serious digging, I still feel like I barely scratched the surface.

So there are four mixes altogether and they basically reflect the order I found the records in. This means that some of them have a few tracks by the same artists in. For example, the third one seems to have rather a lot of Wando and Paulo Diniz tracks on it.

And they all have at least one Jorge Ben track on them. Because he’s ace.

Volumes 2, 3 and 4 will follow over the next couple of weeks…
