Carmen Miranda had just turned 30 when she arrived in New York from Rio in 1939; Antonio Carlos Jobim wrote many of his best songs by age 25. And Marisa Monte was only 22 when she recorded her first album in 1989. Time marches on, so today, we’ll explore Brazil’s Millennial Music Makers. A baker’s dozen of the best new generational voices from the land of samba and sun including a broadcast debut for Alexia Bomtempo.
