MPB reviews at musicabrasileira.org

Anybody not know musicabrasileira.org? Editors Kees Schoof (from Holland) and Egídio Leitão (from Brazil) as well as various contributors have been turning in detailed, personal responses to sophisticated MPB CDs for almost a decade now.

Don't let the URL fool you -- they write in English! New reviews arrive monthly and are highly recommended. Where else are you going to read about such gems as Eveline Hecker and Renato Borghetti? Of course, they also give a listen to releases by MPB mainstays from Mônica Salmaso and Vinícius Cantuária to Caetano and Gal, and do so with informed ears that jazz mags and world music sites can't touch.

Thank you very much for letting us know about musicabrasileira.org
MPB is the best musical expression of Brazil in my opinion. It incorporates several Brazilian and foreigners styles, with lyrics of best quality. I am a BrazilianMusicophile! ;-)
