Brazil Comes to London

São Paulo has earned itself a well-deserved place in Brazilian popular music. Both singer-songwriter Rita Lee (of Os Mutantes fame) and composer/performer Toquinho (who collaborated for many years with Garota de Ipanema co-writer, Vinicius de Moraes) were born there. The city is also name-checked in Criolo’s 2011 heartfelt lament “Não Existe Amor em SP” from his debut album.
