Delivering the ultimate word on the Colombia last year with their adroit open guide, the championing South American publishers and website Sounds And Colours now turn the spotlight on Brazil – the burgeoning titan both financially and culturally of Latin America.
Currently receiving and hoping to attract further pledges through ‘indiegogo’ –http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sounds-and-colours-brazil/ – Brazil will feature a reliable purview of the country’s arts, music and film scenes, with suitable accounts and articles on the key developments and history. There will also be an accompanying mood setting CD, featuring the full spread of styles and ages, plucked from the last century and the present.
‘We love Brazil. We love the music, the culture, the people, the amazing landscapes. We love everything about it, so this summer we’ll be focusing on Brazil for our second ever publication. Sounds and Colours Brazil will be a 200 page book of articles, photos and illustrations presenting the impossibly vibrant music and culture of Brazil, complete with a compilation album of new Brazilian music so you can hear exactly what we’re talking about.
From Rio to Recife, from São Paulo to São Luiz, from the Southern plains of Porto Alegre to the pumping soundsystems of Amazonian Belém, we’ll be covering every inch of Brazil, bringing its music, film, art and literature to life. With a team of expert writers, photographers and artists, S&C Brazil will be a passionate, in-depth, authoritative and thoroughly enjoyable journey into the Brazilian way of life.
We will be going in-depth on the diverse music scenes of South America’s biggest country, looking at both Brazil’s classic genres (samba, choro, forró, sertaneja) and the new, cutting-edge sounds surging in its cities today. We will be interviewing film directors, looking for the next “City of God” and writing about classics from the Cinema Novo movement. There will be articles about Brazilian literature, society and visual arts, in addition to artwork and illustrations from Brazilian artists.’
