In Brazil, you can fall in love, and then fall right back out.
Not long ago, I had the pleasure of having L..A.’s Paulinho Garcia perform ‘live’ in our broadcast studio for my weekly Sunday afternoon show on 90.9 FM WDCB (2 pm – 4 pm every Sunday in Chicago) and during his banter between songs, he joked “There are only really two love songs in Brazil… the rest is just complaining!”
The reason Paulinho’s one-liner is funny is because, of course, the truth is exactly the opposite – you’d be hard-pressed to find a country where more music is dedicated to the subject of love than Brazil.
From the earthy and frenetic Samba, to the eternally gentle sway of Bossa Nova (said to mimic the movement of a woman’s hips when walking along the beach), Brazil’s unofficial language is the language of… love.
So, this week on The Sounds of Brazil we’ll celebrate the most romantic day of the year with ‘A Brazilian Valentine.’ Two hours of colorful cards, candy hearts and ‘Be Mine’ bouquets all set to the rhythm and romance of our favorite musical nation.
