PFH Rio de Janeiro mix tape playlist

October 2, 2019

As you may know by now I always make a playlist for each destination I’m travelling to that includes songs sang about where I’m going. If you haven’t already listened to my previous playlists you can do so at the following links:

This time however it’s Michael, my partner, who has put together one of the very best Rio themed playlists you will ever hear. Michael has been obsessed with Brazil for as long as I’ve known him and has been listening to Brazilian music such as Bossa Nova and MPP (Música Popular Brasileira) for many, many years, so he very kindly curated his massive playlist to create one for you that features 36 of his favourite Brazilian songs that perfectly express that world-famous Carioca spirit which you can listen to on Google Play here and on Spotify here.
