Brazil is largest country in South America, and certainly the best place to watch the World Cup.

Brazil is a musical paradise as well as a football powerhouse. And a few days before the World Cup kicks off in Brazil, John Schaefer gives us a primer on Brazilian music.

Schaefer, host of WNYC's Soundcheck and New Sounds, has all the details on the best soundtrack for this year's World Cup.
