Expanding My Horizons

As I mentioned here, I've developed a deep and abiding love for Brazilian music. Thanks to our satellite dish and LINK tv's program titled, World Music, I have a new Brazilian group to add to my playlist of faves, called the Tribalistas. Unfortunately, they have disbanded, but in 2002 and 2003 they made beautiful music together. With an alluring blend of voices and a dreamy musical quality, I could listen to this all day. (And I did!)

My two favorites are Carnavalia:


and Passe Em Casa:



I think it's a hoot that one of the band members is playing the "dustbuster" - who knew that was a musical instrument? And, I do wish I could understand Portuguese! No matter, whatever they are saying, the beautiful rhythms make me want to get up and dance. So... here I go.

what fun music! Passe Em Casa is definitely a new favorite (and i might even start wearing my sunglasses upside down)...really makes you want to get up and move! my dutch boy's brother lives in brazil with his wife (he moved from belgium for her and learned to speak portuguese - now that's true love!). they live on a farm and grow and grind their own coffee beans, have wild monkeys constantly stealing bananas from their banana trees, and she makes fresh yogurt every morning...move over martha stewart. :)

I do know how captivating Brazilian music can be. I was raised listening to a lot of it... from Chico Buarque to Jobim, Maria Bethania, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and so many others.
If you ever need any translation from Portuguese I can help :)

PS- If you lived closer, I would surely invite you for my nature walks :)
