August Sound Style – A Trip To Rio

August provides us a last chance to soak up the sun at the seaside before the cool breezes of fall arrive. Even if swelter in canyons of steel all month and never make it to the shore, we dream of the exotic intensity of far off beach locations. One such location that remains perennially at the top of the list is Rio de Janeiro.

We may not be able to send you off to Rio to cap off your summer but this Brazilian themed playlist will whisk you away to the land of suntanned hotties, caipirinhas and Bossa Nova. Just don’t blame us if you end up humming the infinitely memorable August Day Song well into next month.

    This is a great Brazilian song: https://play.spotify.com/track/7tcqEGjQXMlSMVrqV8Pywq

    I was a bit surprised you did not have Marisa Monte on your list: https://play.spotify.com/track/2bFFv6wOxxoaXazAQrGZ4L or https://play.spotify.com/track/7EohMA2a5OYm9gpbm2xoEs

    While not Brazilian, I also dig this song https://play.spotify.com/track/344T86EXj0i3NBg5EVtKcw

      Nice picks, Vinicius! Good mellow vibes all around.

      The list of great artists and songs that didn’t make the final playlist is huge! This is just a sampler that we’re hoping to get people exploring more great music out there, like that of Marisa Monte.

      Yes, the groove has been caught, on that track.

      Obrigado to Gene for bringing more Brazilian vibes.
