Outro dia liguei na Rádio Nacional e só ouvi música brasileira. Parecia que eu estava em Nova York.
The other day I turned on Radio Nacional and I only heard Brazilian music. It felt like I was in New York.
Hello and thanks for reading! My name is Victoria Broadus. I first came to Brazil in 2008, when I was studying Portuguese at Georgetown University, and now I’ve lived here since early 2012. I started this site as a way to share more Brazilian music with friends and family and any other readers out there who wonder what the songs they’re listening to are saying, and why. I try to keep a balance between popular songs (e.g. bossa nova) and songs that aren’t as well known outside Brazil, and even in Brazil. Please let me know if there is a song you would like translated or would like to hear more about. You can leave a comment here or anywhere else on the site, or on the Facebook page. For requests, if I can’t write a full post about the song, I can usually offer the translation at least.
