Thanksgiving Day marks the beginning of our 8th year for The Sounds of Brazil’s ‘live’ streaming station.

Thankful to share Brazil’s music and culture with you.

We took a big step forward on Thanksgiving Day, 2014 with our ‘always live’ streaming station at

Launch day was chosen with purpose: Thanksgiving reminds me of how grateful I am to be able to do what I love and to be able to share it with you.

I am thankful, too that our streaming station has grown to become America’s top independent choice for the best of Brazilian music: Bossa Nova, Brazilian jazz, and crossover hits from both sides of the equator.

Thankful from Day One

I created The Sounds of Brazil for you, and to give the music and the musicians who perform it a special home.

This week marks the 1,540th consecutive week for The Sounds of Brazil, which made its broadcast debut in Chicago on April 5th, 1992. A few months later The Sounds of Brazil moves to its Saturday home on WNUA FM with a very special ‘Meet n Greet’.

2022 marks Brazil’s Bicentennial year. It will also be a milestone year for every we do here. Connect Brazil celebrates its 25th full year, The Sounds of Brazil’s 30th anniversary, and Brazil

Always Live, Always Free

I invite you to listen to our streaming station anytime on – the official streaming radio partner for The Sounds of Brazil.

I chose Thanksgiving Day, 2014 as our debut date to always remind myself of how thankful I am to be able to share the music with you, and how much I appreciate your listening. Knowing that you are in the audience means so much to me.

It helps me to be the best I can be, each and every day.

So happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from all of us here on The Sounds of Brazil at
