A cinematic journey of discovery

Many of us have “the tip of the iceberg view” of Brazilian music. We know bossa nova, Tom Jobim, Sergio Mendes and some may even have heard of Elis Regina or Seu Jorge. But there’s so much more to be found below the waterline.

Oba! Sounds of Brasil! will take its audience on a cinematic journey of discovery underneath that iceberg. Oba! Sounds of Brasil! will explore the impact of Brazilian music on all genres of popular music, TV commercials, feature film soundtracks and club or house music to explore why and how the Brazilian beat is so beloved.

We will use film and TV clips, interviews, stock and archival footage and a series of evangelists and narrators to guide us as we document the powerful and profound impact of the Brazilian sound on the world music scene.

Oba! Sounds of Brasil! is a love letter to Brazilian music and the Brazilian sound. Oba! Wow!

#we love brazilian music
