“Episode 3 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 third programme, Gilles continues the series with music from Rio’s Leny Andrade, clarinetist and saxophonist Paulo Moura and Brazilian superstar, Gilberto Gil. Gilles also digs deep into his record collection for the third Santa Graal record, where he shines the spotlight on a stand out album from Brazil’s past. This week he picks Elis Regina’s 1969 release, Elis Regina In London.
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.”
