Beats of All-Nations: World Cup 2014 Soundtrack

Words by:  Mike Styles

Its no news that our journey began in Brazil with record hunting trips, for weeks at a time over a span of 3 years.  The journey is long, documented with audio and video, and most of it has been unreleased.  That is neither here nor there.  Our work is never done.  But today isn’t about us, the world looks on as Brazil, the country that holds the most titles, host the 2014 World Cup.  Though we are torn as the Brazilian’s protest their beloved sport over the billions invested to host FIFA for the month.  We want to reflect what has drawn us to Brazil in the first place, from the culture to the music, this is Beats of All-Nations:  World Cup 2014 Soundtrack.  Stay tuned as we will update this post everyday of the Cup with some of our favorite music from our the largest country in South America, Brazil!

GAME DAY 25//THE WORLD CUP:  Silvio Cesar – A Festa

Its no news, though we were pulling for Argentina in today’s big game, Messi the magician just didn’t turn on the magic.  It was a great game and Germany really deserved to triumph in this tourney for their excellence in their performance against Brazil alone!  Today’s pick is the final choice for our World Cup 2014 Soundtrack.  I really hope you enjoyed the picks, as each game day I randomly selected songs that came to mind, you can see and hear them all below.  Today’s pick is Silvio Cesar‘s “A Festa,” which simply translates into “A Party.” Germany is certainly having a party now!
