Here’s Scott: “This episode features Brazilian music from Duo Partido. On their new EP, vocalist Alicia Ramirez and guitarist Dario Griffin bring some really fresh ideas to some Bossa nova classics you already know, alongside a few tunes from the more modern school of Brazilian music. You’ll hear selections their new EP, including their excellent interpretations of music by A.C. Jobim, Sueli Costa, Guinga, and others.
You’ll also hear a little about the origins of Bossa nova, and about a really interesting thumb technique that helps to create some really beautiful and exotic sounding chords.
We also continue our search for prospective careers in music that lie outside the traditional combination of performing and teaching. In this case, we take a moment to talk about music therapy. You’ll get a glimpse at Alicia’s path in this field and some suggestions for further exploration into music’s connection with the mind, about its ability to help and heal in a diverse set of circumstances.”
