It's no coincidence that a lot of ink has been spent on Brazil travel threads. Brazilian women are passionate, fun, and most of all aren't subject to the silly puritanism of American girls. In short, they love to fuck and they don't feel guilty about it. To a Brazilian woman, sex is a natural thing to be enjoyed to the fullest. That's the good news, the bad news is that Brazil is subject to the same obesity and other shitty social trends as the rest of the Western world. A lot of men would say the best years for gaming in Brazil are in the past. I'm not qualified to comment on that because I haven't been there yet. But I'm also not going to wait until it gets worse.

The purpose of this thread is to introduce the guys who are new to Brazilian music so that they instantly have something in common with every Brazilian they meet, whether that's in Brazil or somewhere else. Every time I meet a woman from Brazil, we always have enough in common musically to have a good conversation. And they all really appreciate that I took the time to learn about their country. Having a good knowledge of this aspect of Brazilian culture will help to create rapport with anyone you meet in Brazil or from Brazil and help you expand your social circle. On top of that, Brazil has a lot of really good music. Especially given the vapid state of American pop these days, it's well worth broadening your horizons. If it gets you laid, so much the better...
Anyone with knowledge of Brazilian music should feel free to contribute. I know a lot of good Brazilian music, but I'm by no means an authority...
Bebel Gilberto is a good place to start with Brazilian music. For one, she's still putting out great music and it pays respect to the old school without being trite. For another, she sings quite a few songs in English...









This is a great song to appreciate the sound of Portuguese:



Ed Motta... for those of you who like old school R and B, you may hear shades of Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, maybe a few others:







Once you hear Stan Getz on saxophone, you never forget the sound. He was American, but he participated in some of the most seminal Brazilian Jazz and Bossa Nova recordings of the 60s. The first song here is by Jobim, who was such a musical badass they named the airport in Rio de Janeiro after him (I'll get to him later):





Maybe the most famous Brazilian Jazz song ever:





Great for soothing the frayed nerves of your garota:



Cibelle:





This reminds me of Sade:





And finally one in English:



Daniela Mercury:

This is a good example of Samba Reggae, from Bahia in the northeast part of Brazil:





An interesting Bossa Nova interpretation of a Jobim song:







Some of you may remember Seu Jorge as one of the gangsters in City of God. He also did the David Bowie/Ziggy Stardust interpretations in the movie "The Life Aquatic" with Bill Murray. I'll let anyone interested dig that up on YouTube, it's well worth checking out. He's done a lot of other great music too...





One of his solo tunes with a little eye candy:





Ana Carolina plays some great bass here:







Will post more tomorrow. If anyone has any requests, lemme know...
You forgot the greatest of them all: Caetano Veloso, João Gilberto, and Chico Buarque.

Daniela Mercury's genre is not "Samba Reggae" (WTF?), it's Axé.




This stuff is cool but seems mostly low-key.

Anybody know of some good upbeat/dance music? Thx
Aline Calixto


Well I think right know one of the most popular Brazilian songs played in clubs/discos is Balada Boa. You need some dancing skills to really enjoy it in the dance floor though.



Brazilian music is much more than stan getz and gilberto.

I like martinho da vila- perfect for sitting on the beach. Chicks dig Michel Telo's Ai Se Eu Tu Pego.

Maybe Mr. GM, Ms. Chocolate and Amour Fou will help out with the good brazilian music.
Keep in mind that much of the Brazilian music and artists we listen to outside of Brazil aren't much listened to at all by the young women of Brazil today. Someone like Bebel Gilberto(who I do like) probably has most her fan base in America and Europe.

I love the classic music of Brazil like bossa, but don't expect to find much of it anymore. I was surprised to only find one remaining in bossa jazz lounge in Rio and even then I think it was catered to gringos. Listing Stan Getz and Bebel to a Brazilian would probably mark you as a newbie.

Samba and forro seem quite popular. Funke was all the rage last time I was there. Then there's a lot of poppy music that sounds like shit to me.

Yes, Daniela Mercury's genre is Axe (pronounced ah SHAY), but the first video of hers, Nobre Vagabundo, is an example of Samba Reggae. For those of you who are interested in more upbeat, high energy dance music, Daniela Mercury, and Axe in general, are well worth checking out. Some other famous Axe artists are Ivete Sangalo and Banda Eva:

Some nice eye candy here of Ivete Sangalo as a bonus (I know, some of you are thinking 4/10, would not bang. I think she's smoking hot):





Banda Eva:





Ivete Sangalo used to be the singer for Banda Eva. Here is a video of her with them:





The singer for Banda Eva doing a romantic duet with Daniela Mercury. Saulo Fernandes is an interesting cat...to me game is about living the way you want to, and he's clearly got it. Look at the way he interacts with Ivete in the video above and this one as well with Daniela. Also, I've turned about 1/2 a dozen Brazilian women onto this video, and they always appreciate it, it's clearly a DHV:





You really don't forget Caetano Veloso, this is more recent, he's older and it's reflected in his gravitas on stage:





Contrast that with him and Djavan (more on him later) back in the early 80s on Globo (Brazilian TV channel) singing Sina:





The incomparable Joao Gilberto:

Here's a video of Joao playing guitar while his daughter Bebel, who looks about 12 here, sings the great Brazilian classic Chega de Saudade:





Chico Buarque to come later. If anyone has better quality recordings, better songs or whatever of some of these classic Brazilian artists, feel free to bust them out at anytime. I'm by no means an expert on Brazilian music, I just like it and it gets me laid. Also, some of you younger guys may want to share what you're listening to these days to make this thread more responsive to modern sensibilities. I'm a little bit old school and not always up to date on what gets it wet for the young girls. I only know what works for me.
Thanks to all who have contributed so far, some great music here...it's like going to school for something I can actually use down the road.

I think you're probably right about Bebel Gilberto. She's worked that crossover market very well to cater to international tastes, including mine and provided a good segue to other genres of Brazilian music that i might not have been as open to otherwise.

I hope that it isn't going to take a small but dedicated fan base to keep Bossa Nova alive. For me, Bossa is like Flamenco, it got into my blood the first time I heard it, and it's never left and never will. To me, it's a truly seminal and inspired genre, and timeless in its appeal.

I found that talking to young Brazilian women about Caetano Veloso or Heitor Villa-lobos is a lot easier than talking to some 22 year old American club twit about Coltrane or even the Beatles, for example. Perhaps part of it is that they're being polite, but I've also seen some genuine appreciation that I took time to learn about their culture and that does DHV. Keep in mind, this is all here in the states. We'll see how this applies in Brazil when I go there in a few months...
I dig this playlist by Montreal DJ Ja Big. Smooth Samba, Bossa Nova, and Lounge tunes...



Are there any female singers that sound smooth and relaxing like Sade or maybe Dido?
