New DB Radio Playlist!
I took at a peek at some of the Spotify Brazil playlists to see if my taste correlates and comes close to that of others, or to some algorithm, and though I suspect there are others (I can name some musicians I know) who gravitate toward the same artists as I do, I didn’t see any playlists that cover that same group of artists. The playlists I found lean towards Baile Funk, contemporary pop (very predictable) and the classics of MPB (música popular brasileira, Chico, Caetano, Gil, Djavan, Milton, etc.) Samba and Bossa Nova. I will try again as I am quite sure I’m not as unique as I might think I am. But in the meantime, here’s MY current Brazil playlist, available to listen on davidbyrne.com!
