Tropicalia 2

Here is another fine playlist of Brazilian Tropicalia music.  From the late 1960s, Tropicalia is a mix of Bossa Nova, Psych, and 60s Pop, with a whole lot of other elements thrown in the stew, like church, French and latin music.  General chaos and experimentalism is the order of the day.  This playlist, more technically post-tropicalist, veers more to Brazilian psychedelic music, and musicians who entered the movement after its founders.  Featuring  Sergio Sampaio, Fabio, Alceu Valenca and Geraldo Azevedo, Manduka, Secos and Molhados, and Jorge Ben, among others.  You can hear them all in a row by clicking on the video below, which is a You Tube playlist featuring all of the songs.  Or you can click on any of the songs listed below and hear them individually.

If you like this list, you may want to try our  Tropicalia Playlist that features many of Tropicalia’s founders, including Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Tom Ze and the incomparable Os Mutantes (The Mutants).  I particularly recommend Os Mutantes first album, Os Mutantes, from 1968.
