It's no secret that we here at Bobofeed are huge fans of Brazil. And we've found that the best way to maintain a Brazilian high (other that a cachaça intravenous) is through her music.
We are true novices in this field. We have a rather massive collection of Brazilian favourites, but one can only listen to so much Sérgio Mendes! And after hearing eight renditions of The Girl from Ipanema, that standard gets a little tedious.
So, it was with great joy that we recently discovered a new podcast available for free download on i Tunes called "Spirit of Brazil".
[An aside here: we've discovered over the years that many of you who live in the PC world, as we do, (as opposed to Planet Mac), are convinced that i Tunes is available only to Mac users.]
i Tunes is most definitely fully accessible to PC users, and should be embraced by you all. You will never set foot in HMV (sorry, Your Majesty!) again!
On the i Tunes site (assuming you have downloaded & installed it) head over to the i Tunes store. Once there, you will find a "power search" option on the right sidebar. Click on it, enter "Spirit of Brazil podcast" & go get'er!
We have just finished listening to podcast #42, which we were ecstatic over, and are currently grooving to #43. Each of these is between half and one hour long. According to our rough calculations, from this podcast subscription alone we have just acquired about 30 hours of great music. Do we need to remind you that it's FREE???
Over the last couple of years we have also subscribed to these great Brazilian music podcasts:
Brazilian Beatz podcast
Brazilian Music Connection
