Mario Caldato is the multi-talented producer who bridges the cultural divide between Brazil and the US. Mario is perhaps best known for his work with the Beastie Boys (he introduced Brazilian music to the band), Jack Johnson, Money Mark, Tone Loc, Seu Jorge, Vanessa Da Mata, Bebel Gilberto and many others. He recently completed work on the Bottletop Band Project which was organized to support health awareness issues. And he remixed one of my favorite Chico Science tunes, Amor de Muito. Born in Brazil but raised in Los Angeles, Mario has an interesting and perhaps unique perspective on the Brazilian sound and its influence outside of Brazil. Thanks Mario for the stellar work and the wonderful insights!
