Genre: Worldbeat, MBP, Brazilian Pop, Bossa Nova | Label: Putumayo World Music | # PUT 315-2 | Time: 00:45:42

Putumayo Presents: Brazilian Beat features 11 tracks that cover the spectrum of MPB, or Brazilian popular music, in its current forms. Of course, bossa nova and samba are here, virtually part of the nation's musical DNA by now. Some of it's not even Brazilian – BungaLove, for example, are Italian, but play perfectly convincing Brazilian music, while singer Monica da Silva was born in the U.S. yet manages a laid-back, suave groove on "Ai Então." There's plenty of Brazilian-flavored funk, with both Bruna Caram and Rogê carrying on and updating the '70s sound, adding more beats to the mix. What's apparent from this selection is that there is plenty of good Brazilian music around, building on the traditions that have been forged over the years, and that in artists like Tita Lima and Fino Coletivo the future is in sure hands.

Gypsy music from central Europe is collected in one of the most upbeat and happy putumayo albums. The "traveling people", or Roma, have one of the most colorful and complex musical cultures of the planet. Travel with Gypsy Caravan through various European countries and enjoy great Romani music in its many versatile forms like the klezmer style of Romanyi Rota, the more folkish quality of Ando Drom, the flamenco of both Thierry Robin and Miguel Angel Cortés, or the french jazzy guitar of Coco Briaval's tribute to Django Reinhardt. Another putumayo's "chef d' oeuvre".
