Jovem Guarda - Another Revolutionary Sound From Brazil In The Sixties

You may have heard of the revolutionary Brazilian music and arts movement in the Sixties called Tropicalia. It gave the world the initial offerings of superstars Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Os Mutantes and others. Today on Latin Roots Ernesto Lechner is here to talk about another movement from the mid 60's, Jovem Guarda. While Tropicalia had a lot of Brazilian influences, the artists of Jovem Guarda were more directly influence by The Beatles and music from abroad. Ernesto will play us a couple and put together a Spotify playlist for further exploration.
