This site is here to make Brazilian music more accessible to English speakers. I’m going to do my best to translate the lyrics to convey their original meaning, and hope that readers might offer advice, as well. For more about the site and me, see About.

My name is Victoria Broadus and in early 2012 I moved from Brooklyn, New York, to Brazil - first São Paulo, and now Rio de Janeiro. I began studying Portuguese while working toward a Master's degree in Latin American Studies at Georgetown University, and have since become fluent. I love Brazilian music and want to be able to share it with more people, so I'm working on translating songs to English and providing some contextual interpretation and stories about the songs and the musicians. **Update: In August 2017 I moved from Rio back to Washington, D.C., to start a PhD in History at Georgetown. I haven't been able to post as frequently because of that, but will be back to writing more soon!** View all posts by lyricalbrazil
