Music for the Masses: Afro-Brazilian Jam #3 (Audio)

Aug 07, 2019
Rebroadcast from Aug. 4, 2019. 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. Today we offer a third sampling from the limitless source of exceptional Afro-Brazilian sounds, featuring music by Bixiga 70, Tim Maia, Luiz Muriçoca, Grupo Batuque, Vieira e Seu Conjunto, Mestre Verequete e O Conjunto Uirapurú, and lots 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 the Hudson studio.
