This month we celebrate the music of Brazil. With musical influences from Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, North America, and neighboring countries in South America, Brazilian music is soulfully eclectic. We hope you enjoy this curated playlist!
We’ve compiled some of our favorite Portuguese songs, moving seamlessly from traditional Portuguese music (called fado) to more contemporary styles like electronica, rap, or rhythm and blues. Read on to learn about the history and evolution of Portuguese music, and listen to the playlist yourself!
