Welcome back!

This week, August’s ‘Bossa Rio’ theme brings us another radio and webcast special: ‘The Girls From Ipanema’.

Rio has not only inspired hundreds of memorable songs, but it also has paved the way for countless talented Brazilian performers.

This week, we’ll focus on the women, with tunes from 15 classic MPB and Brazilian jazz standouts, including Leila Pinheiro, Joyce, Cris Delano, Astrud Gilberto, Gal Costa, Zizi Possi, and others.

As you’ll hear, ‘The Girl From Ipanema’ was only the beginning! On the radio and our live steaming station too.

Enjoy the show!
