This show is dedicated to Northern Brazil with new sounds from Amazonas state, Pará, Ceará and beyond.
It’s a really exciting time to take a listen because right now a northern influence is taking the whole country by storm. Raw tecnobrega beats, twangy guitarrada riffs and bouncy carimbó rhythms are working their way into the national soundtrack. We go to the source.
Check out our new playlist featuring the queen of the Amazon rave scene, Gaby Amarantos, sci-fi brega wonderboy Jaloo, Brazilian hip hop’s northern star Don L and more.
Hosted by Jody Gillett.
