“Brasil, Brasil”, the history of Brazilian music according to the BBC

December 21, 2009 | By More

Brasil, Brasil is a superb 3-hour program produced by the BBC containing a comprehensive review of Brazilian music. Here’s the link to the BBC’s website with all the data on the documentary series: Brasil, Brasil. If you search on YouTube you will find the entire documentary divided into multiple chunks to allow for easier visualization.

Our friend Ernesto (I learned about the documentary series on his A Gringo in Olinda) has listed some of the links to the YouTube videos at the bottom of his blog entry Recommended music.

    I’ve not seen this yet but need to check it out! Just in case you’re interested, I found a more detailed page with some background resources (photos, information about the artists, tracklistings etc) on the BBC site here:


    Hope that helps!

    Cheers, Suzy
