Brazil: A Musical Panegyric

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Swimmers and sailors dodging toxic debris...
Body parts washing up on the volleyball beach...
Plague and pestilence...
Government scandals, infrastructure breakdowns, a reeling economy...
And the best music in the world.
It can only mean one thing: The Rio Olympics are finally underway.
We celebrate with three hours of Brazilian music tonight on Transpacific Sound Paradise!

The opening theme was awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/6/16 6:04pm Gaylord Fields:

That topical theme song deserves the gold medal! And then three hours of musical Brazil follows!!! I will be in heaven!
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:06pm Rob W:

Thanks Gaylord and maestroso, yes, Katie's going for the gold!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/6/16 6:08pm Gaylord Fields:

Katie is the Michael Phelps of theme song vocalists (and a pretty fair swimmer in her own right)!

Bowie Bossa Nova, what a gorgeous cover!

Lovely Bowie cover!

Portuguese is such a beautiful language.
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:28pm Linda Lee:

love the Virginia Rodrigues piece deeply. i know i've heard it in another context .. film, televison .. anyone?
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:29pm Linda Lee:

it really is a beautiful language. agreed.
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:32pm Rob W:

Virginia Rodrigues has some IMDB credits - - I don't see that song in particular but maybe someone used it somewhere - and if it hasn't been licensed in a film, someone should!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/6/16 6:33pm Gaylord Fields:

Umbabarauma is a PERFECT song to play for these Olympic games! Joga a bola, Rob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/6/16 6:35pm coelacanth:

greetings Rob and Paradisians
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:36pm geezerette:

Hi Linda Lee; you were so right about avoiding the last night of DNC.
This however... :D
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:37pm Linda Lee:

yes! medicine for the soul :-)
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:38pm geezerette:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/6/16 6:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I remember 'Umbabarauma' from - my youth - illustrated by a cartoon about futball (soccer) on a PBS Animation Festival program. Am early intro to 'World Music' - & a good one.
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:40pm Linda Lee:

djSheilaB was talking yesterday about the shortage of beauty in our lives collectively ~ & how important it is to experience beautiful music. what makes beautiful music is your own call .. but it's crucial to have it. thinking of her words tonight with TSP!
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:41pm Linda Lee:

when there's beauty in the music, it's a full body deal :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/6/16 6:41pm coelacanth:

i would've said you've been straddling the tropicalia fence for a while now, but what do i know. i'm genre-challenged.
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:42pm Linda Lee:

hope you're having a fine night coelacanth!
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:45pm geezerette:

Absolutely. Beauty is a necessity for mental,emotional,physical health; and if you have eyes and ears for it, it's there for you everywhere.

Hola coel!
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:47pm Linda Lee:

totally true geezerette! ~ i've always felt lucky that i managed to retain those eyes & ears, from childhood (when we all have it). some of us aren't so lucky.
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:48pm geezerette:

Yes! I'm grateful every day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/6/16 6:49pm coelacanth:

i hope the same for you, Linda. my day's been good, and tonight should be also. i'm going to see a turkish/baltic band tonight in np. they're friends of mine and they get together about once/year when the one actual turk comes back to visit.
(- if it's not too far for you it may be worth the drive.)

olá g!
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:50pm Linda Lee:

coel that sounds truly, truly lovely. alas i don't drive at night! i'm nearly blind after dark & it's just a silly idea. but i know the show will be great!
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:51pm Linda Lee:

small mercies from the universe, geezerette :-)
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:52pm Linda Lee:

anyway why do women singing in portugese always sound so sexy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/6/16 6:53pm coelacanth:

it's a sexy language!
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 6:53pm Linda Lee:

ah. not just me then :-D
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:11pm geezerette:

haha, men sound just as sexy. :)
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:12pm geezerette:

Rob this play list could be an LP. The range! :D
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:16pm Rob W:

Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:21pm slugluv1313:

and yes, BEAUTIFUL soulful music, all of it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/6/16 7:23pm Ike:

Oh, this is Olympics-themed? Got any songs about corruption, fraud, waste, and doping? Ha ha... sigh. :(
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:23pm geezerette:

hey slug!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/6/16 7:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Here we go - sounds like Vodoun.
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:28pm geezerette:

Oh Ike, just bash through the clutter and concentrate on the athletes. At their level athletics is physical music.
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:30pm geezerette:

RevRab, got my rum and cigar. :)
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:31pm slugluv1313:

i was thinking more Brasil Fest themed!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/6/16 7:33pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Right - in Brazil.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/6/16 7:34pm Ike:

I care not for athletics, nor for the athletes' "physical music". I just like music-music!
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:40pm geezerette:

Can't argue with that! :)
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 7:46pm slugluv1313:

i only like music from places that have corruption, waste and selfishness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/6/16 8:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...pity coelacanth - I got these amazing tracks from Bhutan...
Avatar    Sat. 8/6/16 8:05pm maestroso:

Digging this show, can't comment too much 'cause cooking...
     Sat. 8/6/16 8:07pm IFisher:

I too am cooking, but safe to say I'm blown away by this show. Freaking (sorry!) embarrassment of riches, this is. Thank you big time, Rob W
  Sat. 8/6/16 8:08pm Carmichael:

Heya Rob and Olympians.
  Sat. 8/6/16 8:09pm Mr C:

one nation under a groove...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 8/6/16 8:16pm coelacanth:

Rabbit, bhutan, being mostly buddhist, i'd expect to be exceptionally peaceful and harmonious but free of corruption? not likely. ...not even the dalai lama, so - who...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 8/6/16 8:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah - just goofin'. :)
