Ladies and gentleman, I have been lost in the lab as of late, but good things will rise out of it shortly as summer time starts to heat up. I am pleased to announce that next Wednesday night (July 14th, 2010), I will be featuring at DJ El Dopa and Schpilkas’ monthly residency @ The Verdugo Bar (Los Angeles). The night is called Music Makes The Difference: A Night of Brazilian Music. The three of us will be droppin’ Samba, Batucada, Bossa Nova, Baile Funk, MPB as well as rare, classic and contemporary cuts from the Brazilian catalogue of endless music from 10pm-2am. I hope you all can mark your calendar, the night is free and sure to be a fresh fit for a mid-week summer night in one of Los Angeles’ most prominent bars. The Verdugo Bar is located at 3408 Verdugo Rd. LA, CA 90065.
As I continue to work on several projects, I offer this mix I recorded in the summer of 2005. Obrigado is a reflection of my first international record digging trips, and introduction to a wider range of bossa nova. For those that know my choice selections of different styles of Brazilian music this mix may come to a new listeners crash course to Musica Brasiliera. The mix features Brazilian inspired tracks from Sergio Mendes’ Brasil ’65 – ’77, Baden Powell, Astrud Gilberto, Wanda de Sah, Nana Cayimmi, J Dilla, Platinum Pied Pipers, and so much more.
