Favourite Musicians

Hi guys.


I was wondering who your favourite brazilian musicians/bands are so i can listen & learn at the same time?





There are many good musicians in Brazil, here some that I remember now: Paralamas do sucesso, Skank, Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Maria Gadú, Vanessa Da Mata, Marisa Montes. I listen a lot to bossa nova.

I don't know much about it but I had a music teacher who made me listen to this group called "Banda Eva" very modern and I ended up loving it It makes me wanna dance every time I listen to it. And Juan what bossa nova bands can you recommend me? I love bossa but is not common in my country so I just know a few singers.

Sofia, Tom Jobim (António Carlos Jobim) and Vinícius de Moraes are the composers of the best known bossa nova songs, search for them and you'll find lots of good material.

My favorits are João Gilberto (Getz/Gilberto, an album from Stan Getz and João Gilberto, is a must), Tom Jobim, Elis Regina and Toquinho. Caetano Veloso, Chico buarque, Paulinho Moska, Gilberto Gil and Sérgio Mendez are very good bossa and bossa-like musicians. Baden Powell is also a must if you like guitar music.

I hope you like this little selection.

Try Tim Maia! There s a video of him in my blog w/ lyrics in Portugue.



Some of my favourites are Caetano Veloso,Chico Buarque, Vinicius de Moraes,Tim Maia.

The only brazilian band I really enjoy listening to is called Legião Urbana, I love the lyrics.

You should try, besides you will also learn beautiful phrases :).
