- Wednesday 11pm-Thursday 1am
Every Wednesday night from 11pm - 1am you can hear the numerous and enchanting rhythms of Brazil. Brazil is a large country, roughly the size of the United States and there is no shortage of musical styles, from samba and bossa nova to MPB. In addition to playing music, Som do Brasil connects with the community. Brazilian event announcements for the New York City area give the community a chance to experience Brazilian culture first hand. In addition, Som do Brasil promotes local musicians and artists to help them gain further exposure. Some recent guests include local artists Ze Luis, Vanessa Falabella, and the Brazuca Band and world famous Sergio Mendez, Simone, and Jair Rodriguez.
Som do Brasil was started in September of 1997 by Eduardo Delgado, reviving a Street Samba show held in previous years. One of the most loved aspects of the show is the Antonio Carlos Jobim Birthday Broadcast every January. This April, Som do Brasil held a special 500 Years of Brazil broadcast, featuring 8 hours of Brazilian music from the earliest recordings to new releases.
