The last post was about Spanish music, so today, of course I going to talk about some Brazilian artists.
I particularly like the pop-rock bands that emerged in the 80s. But I going to put here different music genres.
Legião was a band that emerged in the 80s and ended in 1996 with the death of the lead singer Renato Russo, one of the most talented songwriters that Brazil has ever had. The lyrics deal with various topics, such as politics, love, sexuality … The compositions are very well made and are worth it.
The group has the same origin as Legião Urbana. The band was the result of the division of the band Aborto Elétrico. The band had several changes due to disagreements, but had his big comeback in 1999 with the album MTV Unplugged. Since then, the group has maintained great success.
The group emerged in the 90s and has the influence of various rhythms such as reggae and electronic rhythms. The songs are the kind that stays in your head all day long.
Diogo Nogueira is the son of the samba singer João Nogueira. One of the most famous samba singers today, he also made an album in Cuba with Brazilian songs that had Latin rhythms such as merengue and salsa.
Marcelo D2, is a Brazilian rapper who started with the band Planet Hemp, but he achieved great recognition in his solo career. He is known for mixing rap with other rhythms like samba and axé, as well as black music.
Ivete Sangalo is one of the most sought singers in Brazil. Her genre is the axé, but she is also famous for ballads and pop songs.
Other rhythms are well known in Brazil:
