The Rio De Janeiro carnival opened up this weekend - and as I always like to do at this time of the year, I like to celebrate this time by playing some of my favourite Brazilian jams and recent acquisitions. It constantly astounds me just how much incredible music came out of Brazil in 70’s and early 80’s - So here is a selection of some very infectious Samba Soul, Black Rio, Bossa, Battucada, and a taste of the Funk Carioca sound of Rio’s favelas from more recent times. Enjoy..

AMIRA - Summer Soulstice Mix

So my girl Amira put this together for the Groove Therapy podcast.. Personally I think it's a little too good to be lost amongst the Groove Therapy archives, so here it is on Soulshaker. And while I might just be a little bit bias, I think the track listing speaks for itself. Infact, there were even a couple of tunes that I had to plead for her to tell me what they were. She even tried to get all secret squirrel on me. Well, now I've posted her tracklist all over the internets for everyone to bite her steeze - that'll learn her!
