Playlists and further listening

Some of the songs played in the series are selected to help viewers widen their knowledge of Brazilian music. If you like the sound of the song then follow up the suggestions in the "Try" section.
Tracks from Epsiode 2: The Tropicalia Revolution

Sina de Caboclo - Nara Leão

Influenced by communism and a desire to use music for social change Nara Leão swapped the lyrics about the sun and sea that characterised Bossa Nova for lyrics about the hunger and hardship of the poor. This kind of music became known as the "protest song".

Try: Nara Leão's album Opinião which kick started the movement or Maria Bethania who became famous for her passionate rendition of songs like Carcará. Geraldo Vandré's Pra Não Dizer Que Não Falei Das Flores (Caminhando) was the anthem for the left wing students.

2. Acender as Velas - Zé Keti

This is Samba do Morro, Samba from the hill, at its best and was considered by the left wing students to be the "authentic" music of Brazil as it was produced by the "real" people and told of their suffering and poverty.

Try: Zé Keti's album Sucessos or the work of Cartola, another famous Samba do Morro exponent whose beautiful songs Alvorada and Preciso me Encontrar became known to the world on the City of God soundtrack.

3. Fool on the Hill - Sérgio Mendes & Brasil 66

Sérgio Mendes became the most successful Brazilian artist in the United States by feeding the demand for easy listening lounge music.

Try: Other jazzy lounge artists like Quarteto Em Cy, Marcos Valle, and Astrud Gilberto.

4. A Banda - Chico Buarque

Famous for his clever lyrics and simple style Chico Buarque became a super-star in Brazil in the 1960s and then came back radicalised from exile and was the most outspoken critic of the military dictatorship in the 1970s.

Try: Cálice, his most famous song criticising the military, Samba de Orly, a reference to the Brazilians in exile in France and the beautiful Valhsinha.

5. Upa Neguinho - Elis Regina

For many Elis was the best singer in the history of Brazilian music, famous for her passionate performances and wild lifestyle.

Try: The brilliant rendition of Caetano Veloso's Cinema Olympia. Or other great songs like Ih! Meu Deus de Céu, Na Batucada da Vida and Maria Rosa.

6. Tropicália - Caetano Veloso

Like a manifesto for a movement, this song announces that a new generation of artists, the Tropicalistas, are going to do things differently - combining the sound of The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix with the tropical sounds of Brazil to create a radically new fusion.

Try: Other Tropicália standards Bat Macumba by Gilberto Gil, Tom Zé's Jimmy Renda-se, and Gal Costa's Tuareg.

7. Ando Meio Desligado - Os Mutantes

Beck and Devendra Banhart are two artists who cite Os Mutantes as a major influence. It is easy to see why with their idiosyncratic and playful style, making them one of the most interesting psychedelic bands of the era, anywhere.

Try: A Minha Menina, El Justiceiro, Ave Genghis Khan and Rita Lee.

8. Aguas de Março - Antonio Carlos Jobim (Tom Jobim)

João Gilberto may have defined the Bossa sound but it was Tom Jobim who was the greatest composer. In his early career he collaborated with the poet Vinícius de Moraes, a hugely successful partnership which produced amongst other things, Chega de Saudade and Desafinado. Aguas de Março comes from a later period and shows his genius for capturing the spirit of Brazil.

Try: More songs by Jobim and Vinícius, A Felicidade, Agua de Beber and of course the hugely famous Garota de Ipanema. Other Jobim songs like One Note Samba, Corcovado (Quiet Night of Quiet Stars) and don't miss Elis Regina's beautiful version of Aguas de Março.

9. Maria Maria - Milton Nascimento

Milton Nascimento has a unique style infused with the sound of his mountainous homeland, Minas Gerais, Gregorian Chant combined with Brazilian rhythms.

Try: His beautiful album Clube da Esquina from 1972.

10. The music of the Bloco Afros

Olodum, Ilê Aiyê, and Filhos de Gandhi are three of the more famous Bloco Afros that function as community centres in Salvador and parade during Carnival time. They are best seen live for the full effect of the drumming but some of them have recorded as well.

Try: Ilê Aiyê's album Black Chant and Olodum's Liberdade.
