Full Moon Mix: MPB

While the athletes have been chasing records in Rio we’ve been listening to records from Brazil. This mix is an attempt to trace the evolution of the Música Popular Brasileira (MPB). We start off with some breezy Bossa Nova, ride up the Amazon to encounter the mysticism of Brazilian folk music, and finally plunge into the golden age of Tropicália.
