    Brazil: Songs Of Protest


    A beautiful and politically conscious Brazilian record that was originally released in the US only by Monitor Records (1968). It’s master tapes were archived at Smithsonian Folkways institute in the US, where it was later re-issued on CD. This is the first time this music has been made available worldwide on vinyl. The album presents twelve songs depicting life in Brazil during the late 60’s. Where many songs of the time stick to the more cliché; beautiful seas, romantic skies, flowers and love affairs, ‘Songs of Protest’ represents another side of the song writing from the region.
