From classics like Girl from Ipanema to Sao Paolo’s songstress Luisa Maita’s very latest, passing through Bossacucanova’s pioneering electro-samba beats and Tom-Ze’s proto-hip hop grooves, we also spend some time with classic Latin American tunes given gentle Brazilian twists by masters Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso.
