This week's show is a cornucopia of Brazilian delights. I'll be playing songs from several eras; from Bossa Nova to Musica Popular Brasileira to Tropicalia to 'Black Rio'. Artists likely to feature include Joao Gilberto, Caetano Veloso, Edu Lobo, Gilberto Gil, Jorge Ben, Os Mutantes, Banda Uniao Black and more.
The Weird But Wonderful vote this week features two gender-specifically altered versions of the song that broke Bossa Nova to the rest of the world:
1. Julie London - The Boy From Ipanema
2. Petula Clark - The Boy From Ipanema
To decide which one plays the show out, get in touch during the live broadcast: [email protected] or text 'subcity' then your message to 07766 40 41 42.
The Spotlight will be on the man who has been referred to as 'The Brazilian James Brown'; Gerson King. I'll be playing a few tracks by him. :)
