a little bit of Rio! :)

13/02/2010

I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the city is upside down with all the Carnival festivities – some of the most important parades are here and people go crazy over the holiday celebrations. With so much going on and so many people going around the streets and beaches with deafening speakers and contagious brazilian sounds, I got in the mood to share some of my favourites, all rooting straight from Rio. Internationally-known figures like Tom Jobim and Vinícius de Moraes, which I’m sure you all have heard of, used to compose their masterpieces right here and I think that’s pretty exciting. :)

P.S.: Fun fact, Seu Jorge is one of Jonny Greenwood‘s favourite musicians.
