Required Listening: Vol 03


In recent years, I've grown a slight infatuation with Brazilian and other Latin music from the midcentury. I even wrote and performed a lyrical essay inspired by its rhythm a couple years ago, that I may or not share in the future. 

All that to say, I've found the soothing vocals, subtle but trance-like rhythms to be perfect for just about any occasion, but especially when I sit down to work and write. Plus, this music being from another time and place helps inspire me to look outside of my usual perspective.

Hope you enjoy.
