In anticipation of Brazil's iconic singer-guitarist Gilberto Gil's concert at Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA tomorrow, hear a new interview with the Grammy-winning godfather of the Tropicália movement on Sergio Mielniczenko's radio show, Brazilian Hour (heard locally in LA every Saturday and Sunday on KXLU 88.9FM from 9:00 to 10:00am). Just recorded last week, the interview includes Gil talking specifically about this concert and the music he will perform.
KCET's "Arrival Stories" weekly column/blog featured Sergio Mielniczenko, the host/producer of the Brazilian Hour, just yesterday here. The engaging story is subtitled, "It Wasn't Like This in São Paulo."
Broadcasting since 1978, check out the Brazilian Hour in any of these 5 languages - English, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Mandarin - on its new site, which just launched on September 7th and soon through its new app for iPhone/iPad/Android.
