Jazzanova’s Alexander Barck Picks His Top 5 Brazilian Albums

This is the first installment of a new feature on the Cultural Cannibals blog. Each week we’ll ask a different artist to tell us their top 5 favorite Brazilian albums. This week it’s Jazzanova’s Alexander Barck. Check out a brilliant Brazilian mix from Alex posted below his list.

Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks as we’ll be featuring lists created by a diverse range of artists, from Baile Funk legend DJ Marlboro to Hip-Hop MC and producer Jneiro Jarel.

Throughout their history Jazzanova have maintained a consistent involvement with Brazilian music, from incorporating elements of samba and bossa nova into their sound, to remixing Brazilian artists like Marcos Valle & Azymuth, to releasing the double LP compilation Paz e Futebol. It’s no surprise that Alex’s list is full of jazzy, groove oriented albums.
