The month of May is all about women of the world on Sound Travels, this week we had...

…the Amazonas Mixtape; a mix of music from the ladies of Brazil.

Built on classic singers from the golden ages of Bossa Nova, Tropicalia and Samba, I took the mix in some different directions when it made sense for the mix. Though it’s an open debate as to who is the greatest Brazilian songstress of all time, I made sure to put the ones I personally adore. From the Bossa sound of Nara Leao to the shiny MPB pop of girl group Quarteto Em Cy. Brazilian Funk from Claudia and Sandra de Sa to modern divas like CeU. Shoot, I even got Astrud Gilberto and her daughter Bebel in the same mix!

more after the break…
