On June 28th the Red Hot Organization, a charity devoted to the prevention of HIV/AIDS, will release Red Hot + Rio 2, a compilation of Brazilian songs from the 60s and 70s, particularly those from the tropicália period, that will be covered by artists including Beck, Caetano Veloso, Dirty Projectors, Seu Jorge, Beirut and Aloe Blacc.In the lead-up to the release I will be writing a number of articles for their blog, with a different article on tropicália going up on the site each week. You can read my first entry, which is called “Tropicália – Pushing the Boundary of Song” here.
