Early work from Seu Jorge – heard here with the group Farfoca Carioca, but still in a style that's got the same soulful samba touches of his own work! The sound is a bit more upbeat here – vocals that are often sung by the whole group at once, even though Jorge gets plenty of solo ... read moreCD

Always-great work from Lenine – one of the few contemporary Brazilian artists we never fail to love! The set's in keeping with Lenine's previous work, but also has a fresh sound too – a bit more acoustic guitar over slight electronic elements and more acoustic percussion – ... read moreCD
Solo work from Paula Lima – the singer from Funk Como Le Gusta, stepping out in a whole new style! The album's a blend of Brazilian funk, American soul, and even has some jazzy touches to it – as Paula's clearly trying to expand her horizons, and work in the mode of a more ... read moreCD

Light breezy bossa-inspired work by singer Paula Morelenbaum – done with some slight electric undercurrents that almost give the record a Bebel Gilberto sort of feel, but enough of a solid grounding in jazz and Brazilian tradition to hold strongly with Paula's excellent earlier recordings! ... read moreCD

Another great chapter in the always-surprising later career of Caetano Veloso – and a record that's unlike anything else he's recorded before! The style here is a real change both from some of his more ambitious and more experimental works of late – and the album mostly features small ... read moreCD
Completely compelling work from Caetano Veloso – proof that his genius hasn't faltered at all over the years! The album follows nicely in the format of Veloso's prevous Ce album – with small combo backing, and a stripped-down sound that's light years from what you might expect from an ... read moreCD
A fantastic family outing from Caetano Veloso – one that has the legendary Brazilian singer working with his sons Tom, Zeca, and Moreno Veloso!
