My daughter has a Brazilian week in her class. I have no idea what this means, but she took her brother’s Brazilian soccer team shirt to school and she asked me if I could make a CD with Brazilian music.
I don’t really like to listen to typical Brazilian music, and especially not to samba’s. I guess that I am not subtle enough for that kind of rhythms. I prefer more simple ones, as you probably will have noticed if you are a regular reader of this Soundtrack. But I don’t want to disappoint my daughter, so I did a search in my Wall of Records and made a compilation with Brazilian music for her. Including all the obvious songs, like Masque nada And Aqua de beber.
I was surprised how much Brazilian music I have, considering the fact that I don’t even like it. Unfortunately, most of this music is not what my daughter asked for. But maybe I can please some of the readers of this Soundtrack with what I found. Like the CD that I got from Marthy Coumans. He compiled a CD with obscure Brazilian 45’s from his amazing collection for me. He sent the tracklist over the mail, but that got lost when my computer died.
On the CD are 25 songs that are difficult to categorize, and of which I have no information at all, except that these are Brazilian 60’s records. Here is one:
