Our celebrity guest parade continued tonight as Daniel Eskils stoped by the Ajvar studio. He is one half of the DJ duo Mengão (the other half is of course Erik Sohlström), by far the best Dj duo name ever*. During his optional one year exile in Rio de Janeiro, Daniel Eskils by chance ran into  Bebel Gilberto, the daughter of bossa nova legend Joao Gilberto. And just like that –  an exeptional door opener to the people, culture and society of Rio. And the enormous music treasure of samba, forró, tropicália, bossa, baile funk, mangue beat, Música popular Brasileira…

From blown away funky like Tim Maia’s O Caminho Do Bem, to “a Rainha do Rock” Rita Lee with the smashing discotune Chega Mais. Cause you se, ther’s no such ting as “Brazilian music”. That’s your lesson for today.
