10 artists influencing Brazilian Music

“albums that are shaping Brazil’s musical revolution, from 10 of the hottest artists south of the equator”

“Azevedo is an award-winning actress and poet, as well as a subversive singer-songwriter. She combines traditional Brazilian rhythms like maracatu and maxixe with some fiercely individual lyrics, tempered by beguiling musical quirkiness — hardly surprising when her band includes musicians who’ve played with Tom Waits and David Byrne. This live airing of highlights from her catalog glides between romance and the artiness of the avant-garde, and is a suitably polished introduction to the queen-in-waiting of new Brazilian pop.”
