Putumayo Presents: Brazilian Cafe

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Paula Carino
Lapping waves of gentle percussion, fingerpicked nylon-string guitars, and laid-back, caressing vocals are the order of the day at this café. Another well-chosen track list from Putumayo is at the heart of this salute to 21st century Brazilian singer/songwriters. Second-generation bossa nova stars Ana Costa and Katia B. do their forebears proud on salty-sweet numbers that sound fresh while honoring the old guard. Other inviting tracks include Marcia Salomon's sultry "Quando o Carnaval Chegar" and Brazilian ex-pat Márcio Faraco's "Na Casa Do Seu Humberto," featuring a whispery vocal over a quietly urgent guitar part.

Lapping waves of gentle percussion, fingerpicked nylon-string guitars, and laid-back, caressing vocals are the order of the day at this café. Another well-chosen track list from Putumayo is at the heart of this salute to 21st century Brazilian singer/songwriters.

Other inviting tracks include Marcia Salomon's sultry "Quando o Carnaval Chegar" and Brazilian ex-pat Márcio Faraco's "Na Casa Do Seu Humberto," featuring a whispery vocal over a quietly urgent guitar part. Where the majority of songs have a folksy, rustic quality, Toco's "Otro Lugar" stands out as a polished gem with sparkling production and an ultra-smooth delivery that suggests cool caipirinhas sipped on white sand. Fans of samba and bossa nova will enjoy the selections, and new listeners will find this a handy introduction to the Brazilian music renaissance.

    Never disappointed

    I have quite a collection of Putumayo music and so far, have not once been disappointed. Brazillian Cafe is no exception. As all the others, it definitely makes me feel good!

    UPbeat, sweet, sexy

    Bought this CD on a lark after listening to a couple tracks at the store. Always looking for some new music and this was a great selection! Definitely a good brunch background music or to lie in bed with glass of wine and cuddle with someone music (yes tried it both ways!) I felt transported to another part of the world as I listened to it. It made me want to pack my bags to go hear more of it in the country! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
