Happy birthday to Carlinhos Brown today. The former leader of Timbalada is also a member of the Brazilian pop supergroup Tribalistas (with Arnaldo Antunes and Marisa Monte).

Tribalistas will tour select US cities in early 2019. Read the Connectbrazil Tour Guide for everything you need to know for a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience.

He got his start as a band member and songwriter with Luis Caldas, and with Caetano Veloso before breaking out with Serio Mendes in 1992.

Brown’s distinctive voice and songwriting skills have earned him a pair of Latin Grammy awards.

Here he is with Alexandra Jackson on ‘Amazon Farewell’ from the Legacy & Alchemy album.
