The music of Brazil has been deeply rooted in African as well as indigenous traditions since colonial times, but in recent years musicians have been reconnecting with those roots and bringing a new African consciousness to popular music. In Part 4 of this ongoing series, we dig into the limitless source of exceptional Afro-Brazilian sounds, featuring a range of genres such as reggae, electronica, afrobeat, batucada, funk, and more. Music for the Masses invites you on an excursion of sound and rhythm. Discover the music of established and emerging artists, both signed and unsigned, on the international music scene. Expect the unexpected. You might want to pack a map and a sandwich. For the avid globe-hopper and armchair traveler alike. Broadcast live from Catskill.
