Welcome to The Sounds of Brazil!

It’s official: There’s already more snow covering more of the country than last year; ditto for the cold and below normal temps… and we haven’t even reached Thanksgiving! Well, the warmth of Brazilian Jazz will push all of our weather worries aside with a ‘best of’ show for Brazil’s greatest Diva… two full hours of singer Marisa Monte for The Sounds of Brazil this week (even more when you click here!).

But first, let’s catch up with a few timely tips for the week ahead:

Join us for The Sunday Brazilian Brunch: Perfect for smoothing out the bumps of a busy week. Three full hours every Sunday beginning at 5 am Central, and then again at 9 am, 2 pm and 8 pm. No app needed when you click the ‘play’ arrow at the bottom of every page at This Sunday, I’ll feature two of our Sunday Brunch vocal favorites: singers Celso Fonseca and Jane Duboc both celebrate birthdays this week.

Jingle, Jingle! Now you can choose from a light dusting of Brazilian Christmas favorites every hour PLUS all-day long every Saturday on our streaming station.  Or let it snow 24/7 with our Brazilian Christmas channel.
