New Music From Brazil

It often seems that only the most stereotypical forms of Brazilian music ever come to the attention of the public: the quiet, cool sounds of bossa nova and its many offshoots. Yet, in fact, many of the styles associated with Brazil's hardscrabble Northeast are known more for their loud exuberance than hushed introspection. On this edition of New Sounds, hear several Brazilian musicians who are experimenting across many styles. These include Smokey and Miho (playing Baden Powell); samba drumming from Timbalada; plus songwriters Celso Fonseca and Caetano Veloso.
