The Best New Brazilian Music for Fall

Four years ago this Thanksgiving Day,  The Sounds of Brazil made its debut as an always live streaming radio station and I’d like to take a minute to express my thankfulness to you for your enthusiasm and support.

The best way for me to show my appreciation is with music, so it’s only fitting that we celebrate our 5th anniversary with The Sunday Brazilian Brunch and a playlist that includes the Best New Music For Fall.

In keeping with our long-held tradition, I’ll even sprinkle in a few holiday favorites in Portuguese and English, too.

Make The Sunday Brazilian Brunch your weekend destination. Every Sunday for three full hours at 9 am, 2 pm and 8 pm Central, and 9 am local time in Brazil, too. Only on our streaming station right here at

Name Dropping…

Every three months or so, I round up the best new songs of the season for a special showcase here on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch.

Here’s what you can expect to hear when you listen this Sunday:

Basia’s new Butterflies album has already delivered a stunning single and ‘Matteo’ is on the playlist this weekend. If you are longtime fan, I’m sure you’ll love it.

It’s also been a while for Brazilian keyboardist Marcos Ariel, whose Americas album is filled with a nice mix of Brazilian and smooth jazz vibes. I’ll play his read on a song made famous by Azymuth, ‘Fly Ove The Horizon’.

There’s a pretty good chancer that, if asked, legendary Brazilian songwriter Erasmo Carlos would lie about his age (by exaggerating!), but the 70’s R&B grove that he lays down on ‘Termos e Condicoes’ (Terms and Conditions) is timeless, and this song has a hook that won’t let go…

Brazilian-American Alexia Bomtempo was featured last month in our Song In The Feminine Key StoryStream, helping to define her place as a rising Brazilian music star. ‘A Cada Canto’ is from a new album called Chasing Storms and Stars, which hints at the amazing story she shared with our Senior Editor Sean Chaffin. You’ll find it here.

Gabriel Martins is the guitar-playing son of Vitor, the longtime songwriting partner with Ivan Lins and the pedigree shows on ‘Valsinha do Mar’, which features… Ivan’s wordless vocals. It’s from Gabriel’s debut album, Mergulho.

Debuts? The buzz building around Alexandra Jackson’s Legacy & Alchemy double-album is worthy of ‘Brazilian Jazz Album of The Year’ consideration, but been that won’t prepare you for the  depth and beauty of her new single, ‘Labirintos’ (Labyrinths) which gets its Sunday Brazilian Brunch debut this weekend.

I’ll have all of these new songs and more for you on The Sunday Brazilian Brunch.

Now you know a little about our two featured singers Jane DuBoc and Celso Fonseca for The Sunday Brazilian Brunch this weekend. You’ll hear plenty of great songs when we get together to unwind and kick back. Just plan to tune in for a while on Sunday.

Happy Listening,

Scott Adams
