When it comes to the seasons and Brazil, everything gets a bit upside down.  So as the land of Samba and Sun slips into the tropical chill of winter in the southern hemisphere, memories of a blazing hot summer still linger on the tan lines of the Copacabana faithful.

Think of those Copacabana memories as a preview of coming attractions because this week, The Sounds of Brazil takes you away for ‘Hot Brazilian Nights’.

The mix befits the occasion: rhythmic tunes from Tom  & Julie, Kaoma and Boney James. Seu Jorge throws down a horn-driven stepper and Marina Elali taps into the Brazilian spirit of Celine Dion. On the ‘wind down and chill’ side, there’s Bebel Gilberto with her acoustic Brazilian guitar, Randy Crawford (because!), Deodato at “Sunset” plus a classic three-in-a-row for our Spotlight Set.

‘Hot Brazilian Nights’ on The Sounds of Brazil, where the nighttime energy supercharges the sun: even dawn can burn hot in Rio’s Zona Sul.

If your summer nights need a jump start, you’ll love this week’s show.
