Chris Galvan Brasil Selection February 2010

SOUL FUNKTION Radio #137 Chris Galvan Brasil Selection

I was very excited when DJ Offbeat asked me to do a Brasil mix for Soul Funktion Radio. The music of Brasil covers such a wide range of sounds and genres, it's European and African, it's commercial and traditional. In all cases, you can hear the soul of the Brasileiros through their music. I've tried to cover a wide range of sounds , and time periods. I've started with one of the most haunting vocals to ever be recorded, Astrud Gilberto singing 'Manha de Carnaval' from the 1959 movie, 'Black Orpheus'. Another track, which has personal meaning to me is 'Queixume' by Tom and Joyce. This track was my gateway into further exploration of Brasilian music and still sounds as fresh as it did on the dance floor in 2002. Since that time, my shelves seem to accumulate more Brasilian records on an almost weekly basis. Enjoy the mix and muito obrigado. -- Chris Galvan
