Music for Brazilians

Posted by on 04/03/2014

So it seems most Brazilian people love classic British guitar bands, such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden, The Smiths and The Cure. Oh, and Coldplay.

There’s no denying that lot have a back-catalogue of truly great music.

But come on Brazil, move with the times, there’s so much newer (and I’m going back to the 90’s here!) music that you need to hear, that’s been influenced by some of those old bands, or maybe not, but either way discovering it could change your life!

I’m no great music expert but here’s my attempt to suggest some alternatives (some/many of these you must know already, right?!):

– From the UK (in vaguely chronological order)




The Stone Roses

Primal Scream



The Verve

Super Furry Animals


Arctic Monkeys


Amy Winehouse


Frank Turner

Florence & the Machine

Bombay Bicycle Club

Jake Bugg

The Vaccines

Mumford & Sons

The Prodigy (dancier option)



Pearl Jam

Jeff Buckley

Rage Against the Machine


The White Stripes

The Strokes

Kings of Leon

The Killers

Foo Fighters


The National

Fleet Foxes

Bon Iver

The Black Keys


Vampire Weekend

LCD Soundsystem (dancier option)

– Oz

Tame Impala

Jagwar Ma (dancier option)

OK, that’ll do for now, I’m bound to have missed several obvious ones, but can maybe add those later. Please look up some of these bands, just listen to whatever’s popular on YouTube, I think you’ll like it…
