Worldbeat, MPB, Brazilian Pop, Bossa Nova, Samba

Putumayo Presents: Brazilian Beat features 11 tracks that cover the spectrum of MPB, or Brazilian popular music, in its current forms. Of course, bossa nova and samba are here, virtually part of the nation's musical DNA by now. Some of it's not even Brazilian – BungaLove, for example, are Italian, but play perfectly convincing Brazilian music, while singer Monica da Silva was born in the U.S. yet manages a laid-back, suave groove on "Ai Então." There's plenty of Brazilian-flavored funk, with both Bruna Caram and Rogê carrying on and updating the '70s sound, adding more beats to the mix. What's apparent from this selection is that there is plenty of good Brazilian music around, building on the traditions that have been forged over the years, and that in artists like Tita Lima and Fino Coletivo the future is in sure hands.

Estudando O Samba/Correio Da Estação Do Brás is a 2-on-1 collection of two albums by Brazil's Tom Zé focusing on 1975's Estudando O Samba and 1978's Correio Da Estação Do Brás. This was remastered in 2000 as part of Continental/EastWest's "Série Dois Momentos" series, focusing on different Brazilian music. The disc was packaged with a Japanese obi strip to make it seem like a Japanese disc.
