The Brazilian Music Day is an online effort to identify and catalog all the recordings of Brazilian Music throughout the world. Material collection on the website (brazilianmusicday.org) will remain active as an online resource to make this culturally significant body of work readily available to people around the globe for study and enjoyment after the official day has passed.

WKCR has been the home of one of the premiere Brazilian radio shows in NY since 1997, popular both in the area of the broadcast and in Brazil. Jassvan DeLima has been hosting it for the past decade and the show is even more popular than ever, airing from 11pm-1am on Wednesdays to an international audience.

The festival will be recorded and featured on the WKCR online archives on wkcr.org.
