“Episode 1 of 4
Throughout the 2014 World Cup, Gilles Peterson’s Musica Brasileira will showcase the very best from what is arguably the world’s most vibrant musical culture.
In this first programme, Gilles plays some Samba from Rio, a rare track from 1958 by Jose Prates, which inspired Jorge Ben’s huge hit Mas Que Nada, and some Brazilian soul. Gilles also picks this first “Santa Graal”, or Holy Grail album, where he features one stand out Brazilian record each week. The first Santa Graal pick is Arthur Verocai’s 1972 self-titled release.
During this landmark four-part series, Brazilian music expert Gilles will guide listeners from the birth of samba to the modern day mega-festivals, from the drums of Bahia to the rhythms of the ‘Nordestina’, the dances of Eastern Amazonia and to the punk rockers of Sao Paolo. Gilles Peterson’s Musica Brasileira will be the definitive guide to the sounds of Rio’s favelas, the beaches of Ipanema and the backstreets of Salvador. Playing music from massive-selling artists to more obscure performers, this programme is a must-listen for Brazilian music aficionados and total novices alike.
Being a lifetime football fanatic, Gilles will also shine the spotlight on the World Cup route. As well as playing the best music Brazil has to offer, each episode will also look at a different part of the country – reflecting the locations of the various football venues that will be playing host to the World Cup matches.”

  1. Yes! 😀

    Been waiting for Gilles to release a Brazilian show during these summer months. He has a wealth of knowledge on latin flavours.

    Now, all I hope is that England stay in the World Cup, otherwise the upbeat sunny samba beats may lose some of their warmth.
