This new collection offers an enchanting mix of musical styles and artists from one of the most musical countries in the world.
Samba, bossa nova and forró are among Brazil’s most popular and accessible musical styles for adults and children alike. Brazilian Playground features these and other engaging rhythms that reflect the country’s diverse culture and easy-going way of life. In celebration of the exuberant sounds of this fascinating country, Putumayo Kids has collected 13 child-friendly songs from many of Brazil’s most talented musicians. Featured artists include Teresa Cristina, a leading samba singer, and Brazilian Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil, renowned the world over as a true musical pioneer who led the Tropicália movement of the 1960s.
The ninth CD in its educational Playground series, Brazilian Playground helps children learn about one of the world’s most fascinating cultures. It features multilingual liner notes in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese, full color photos, a map of Brazil and a glossary of musical terms.
A portion of Putumayo’s proceeds from the sale of this CD will be donated to the Axé Project in support of its efforts to educate and defend the rights of disadvantaged Brazilian children.
