Brazilian Music in Sydney’s Radio

“Estação Brasil” is a weekly program at Radio Northern Beaches 88.7 or 90.3 Mhz, 7 to 8pm every Saturday. Josimar plays the best of Brazilian music from the old tunes to recent successes. Brazilians like us have great proud in our art, the music, the dance, the plastic arts. Creativity is a strong characteristic of our culture.

This program is the result of a life time dream, from a boy who used to get all the friends at his house and kept playing music for them, mixing music, doing K7 tapes for anyone that asked, doing amateur radio programs with his friends. He was the DJ on all the parties and instead of dancing in night clubs he would station himself right beside the DJ’s console and watch them all night.
Josimar brings a good sample of what Brazilian music is about, mostly MPB (Música Popular Brasileira = Brazilian Popular Music) with also samba, pagode, pop, rock, among others. It is worth listening and being part of a man’s dream. For the Brazilians it makes you feel a connection to the Motherland, makes your heart beat on the samba drums: TUN-DUM-SHICKU-DUM-DUM-DUM!

Brazilian Carnaval in Sydney

The Carnaval in Brazil is an event that marks the year. Actually it’s like the world only starts spinning in Brazil after the Carnaval. Seriously, the sales pick up, business in all companies really start only then, school terms, uni classes. It’s all and about after the Carnaval. The country stops for it. No-one can pass it unaffected.
The normal life gets out of the window. If it’s a quiet town it gets deserted because everyone is out. If it’s a busy town it gets crowded with people queuing for fresh bread in the morning and dancing life away the rest of the time. All beaches are packed. Whoever is working works double. All the rest is partying.
It’s all about joy, jumping, dancing, kissing, making out, dressing up, and undressing up. There are a lot of types of Carnaval from each region of my Big Brazil.
I am a co-author in an article at Radar Magazine that explains about it.
Some awesome parties will be happening in Sydney you shouldn’t miss. It’s fun for everyone. No-one in the world should spend their lives without experiencing Carnaval and this is something it’s impossible to explain properly, only being there, sweating the sweat, seeing the bodies, feeling the vibe, adding to the energy, moving your bum and letting yourself go, you will really understand it and the, you will want it every year.
You don’t have to know how to dance just how to jump, scream, party and if you are a good kisser… good for you, you may get lucky.

It’s all about having a great time. Wear something comfortable, sensible shoes and a lot of anti-perspirant please. Choosing Brazilian shirts is a good idea and wearing yellow and green is always a success. Above all: don’t be shy and be prepared for a crowd!
