With interest in Brazil set to reach fever pitch make sure you get the inside scoop on what makes the country tick… its creativity, diversity and rich cultural history. If you’re thinking bossa nova, Carmen Miranda and Jorge Amado then this book may not be for you. Sure, these are all important parts of Brazilian culture (and feature in our book in some way) but we wanted to go deeper than that.Staying as far away from the stereotypes and cliches as possible, Sounds and Colours Brazil is part-book, part-magazine, part-fanzine (and all-passion!) with 200 pages of articles, illustrations and photos that show Brazil in a completely new light. We’ve gone behind the scenes to find out the music making waves in Rio, São Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Salvador and Recife. We’ve looked into why Brazil is miles ahead when it comes to harnessing digital tools for creativity. We’ve dived head first into Brazilian hip-hop, carimbó, afrobeat and jongo, letting you know why you may want to give your stereo a decidedly-’Brazilian’ refit. We even got renowned Brazilian music experts like Hermano Vianna and José Teles to share their infinite wisdom. Plus, the book comes with a 20-track compilation of brand-new Brazilian music so you can hear exactly what we’re talking about.
