This country has enough songwriters I could use to fill this episode. Unfortunately, we have no time to talk all about the Brazil’s musical culture.  Therefore, this time I’ve chosen five songs that I think are representative on Brazil’s recent history and in addition to it, they will give you a little help with your Portuguese learning.

As we speak about the songs, we’ll talk a little about conjugating verbs, vocabulary acquisition and about alliteration in Portuguese.

In this episode I used songs by Jorge Benjor, Titãs, Ultraje a Rigor, Toquinho and Chico Buarque as reference.

Improving your Portuguese by using Brazilian music can be a fun way to learn and here is my share of contribution to it.

País Tropical (Jorge Ben) – Brazilian music

This song is an ode to Brazil and it describes various events of this country. This is a good choice to get used to an informal vocabulary used in everyday life of many Brazilians.

Não vou me adaptar (Titãs)

In this part of the podcast I call attention to the tense used by the Titas in this song.

Inútil (Ultraje a Rigor)

In order to understand why this song was made, it is necessary to understand a little about the historical moment lived in Brazil at that time.

I talked a bit about this and about the wrong conjugation of verbs in Portuguese.

Aquarela (Toquinho)

Toquinho is one of the most respected songwriters in Brazil. In this song you will have the opportunity to increase your Portuguese vocabulary.

Morena de Angola (Chico Buarque) – Brazilian music

Well, I could be unfair or at least the podcast would be incomplete if I made a list talking about Brazilian music and at the same time leaving Chico Buarque out.

In this part of the episode we are going to speak about alliteration in Portuguese.
