Brazilian Free and Experimental Music Overview

Source: A Jazz Noise.

Fate, chance and happenstance have put a lot of experimental and improvised music from Brazilian artists and labels in my inbox in the last couple of years – resulting in regular features in the Daily Tunes series, and some notable favourites in the aJN end of year lists.

I’m not going to pretend that what follows is any kind of definitive statement re: the ‘Brazilian scene’ (I doubt there’s only one!) but more of a chance to dip your toe (ear?) into a selection of free music and experimental sounds from Brazilian or Brazil-connected artists and/or labels. Trust me (if you can) it’s worth it.
