Andre Carvalho – Tempo do Tanto

Impeccable recordings mixed with A-class musicianship, Brazilian singer/guitar player Andre Carvalho has really opened my eyes to the amount of great music coming out of Brazil at the moment. From start to finish “Tanto do Tempo” takes you on a journey through his emotions while staying true to the beauty and complexity of his instrumentation and arranging talents. I hate to sound cliche’ but his guitar tone/style reminds me a lot of late Joao Gilberto, especially on tracks “Daquele Jeito”, “Alvo Certo”, “Nao tem fim”, and “Bom”.  I have really been wanting to explore the Rio music scene and I think I found a great place to start! Much respect to Andre Carvalho and his supporting musicans: Dadi( Guitar), Daniel Carvalho( Bass), Nando Duarte (guitar) and Carlos Sales (drums). Fulljoy this Thursday, and give thanks for all of the cultures we have in the world, bless up!

India Arie & Idan Raichel – “Gift of Acceptance” (MLK Special)

On this day in which we celebrate the birth of our sweet brother Martin Luther King Jr. may we be reminded that his message was not solely for Blacks but rather a universal message for all sufferers of inequality.  MLK’s  message was not against whites, but rather a message against intolerance and injustice.

Let us also not forget that Martin Luther king Jr’s message stemmed from the teachings of Ghandi, therefore his message was not one of separation but rather one of integration and acceptance.

Let us never back down in the face of injustice and inequality; however let us also not forget that the world is filled with many different flavors and styles. May we always seek to learn from the cultural, spiritual, and religious differences that make each one of us unique.

Here’s a track from India Arie and Idan Raichel to help you through the day. Martin would have been proud.
