Feliz Natal!

Our holiday special sets a festive pace: it’s a radio tradition for Brazilian music fans worldwide, going all the way back to The Sounds of Brazil’s first years. 

As with wih all traditions, there’s a story to go along with it as we unwrap a Brazilian Christmas one song at a time. You’ll find our playlist for this week’s show, below.

This year, our Brazilian Christmas programming is presented by the Consulate General of Brazil in Chicago.

Naughty or nice? Here’s a topically tropical list of things you should know for the week ahead. Adding a little more ‘Brazil’ to your life can make a pretty neat stocking stuffer for others, too!:
