Local Musicians Helps to Spread the Brazilian Culture through Music
By Lindenberg Junior | Translation: Amanda Peter
Around the world, Brazilian music is appreciated and loved, and its rhythms and beauty can be recognized by whoever has the opportunity to get in contact with it. Just like soccer, Brazilian music became a trend almost everywhere you go. Bossa Nova was very much responsible for that during the 60’s and afterward, and it opened the doors for other Brazilian rhythms to thrive beyond Brazilian boundaries.
Great musicians from all over the globe are now singing and playing Brazilian music, and in the U.S we have a bunch of them! Including in the Golden State in cities such as L.A, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and San Francisco.
And as a Brazilian media group in California, we started a series in 2015 to show these musicians little by little every year in our Music Special Issue, usually in the first or second issue of each year. Since then we show 6 to 8 local Brazilian musicians residents in California that in one way or another have helped to disseminate the Brazilian culture through music.
There are so many to show them all at once as we believe that those working as “full time” or “part-time” musician living in California goes to over 150 easily. For obvious reason, we show (in our printed issue) 8 of them in 2015 and continue with more 6 and 2016, than 8 more in 2017, etc. In our 100th issue (Feb/March 2020) we showed 9 and in our next Music Special issue (2021) we will bring more 6 or 8. For now (Nov 2020) check out all of these local Brazilian musicians below – remind you that the list will grow every year!
