  • Copacabana Road Mixtape

    August 17 of 1960 is often referred to as the birthday of The Beatles because they played their first show in Hamburg where their career kicked off. As everywhere in the world, the Fab Four were big in Brazil and a lot of bands appeared that simply covered their songs and that of other groups of that time. They often translated the lyrics into portuguese and the most curious are maybe The Brazilian Beatles, see video below. To celebrate the 50th anniversary I selected and mixed some rather reinterpretations than mere cover versions by Brazilian artists.

    Tracklist:

    01. Bem Bolado – With A Little Help From My Friends
    02. Os Sambeatles – All My Loving
    03. Zumba Cinco – A Hard Day’s Night
    04. Manfredo Fest – Something
    05. Bossa Rio – Eleanor Rigby
    06. Vox Populi – Here, There And Everywhere
    07. Wilson Das Neves – Come Together
    08. Formiga E Sua Orchestra – Hey Jude
    09. Rogério Duprat & Os Mutantes – Lady Madonna
    10. Rita Lee – And I Love Him
    11. Elis Regina – Golden Slumbers
    12. Milton Nascimento – Norwegian Wood
