Countdown to Brazil: Samba Time Baby!

In 10 days I’ll be in Salvador, which is pretty much the blackest place on the planet outside of the motherland. Obviously, I’m very excited about this.

Afro-Diaspora Mix

I’m not even going to identify when I recorded this one, but it’s another collection that has remained popular over the years whenever I’d burn a batch on CD. […]
