Elis & Tom
1.  Elis & Tom by Elis Regina

£4.89   Used & New from: £3.02
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Tropicalia Vol.1: Ou Panis Et Circencis
2.  Tropicalia Vol.1: Ou Panis Et Circencis by Caetano Veloso
The list author says:
  "ignore the "vol.1" attached to it in 1995. This is *The* album that launched an entire arts movement in the mid 60s. It will amaze you or disgust you - even today."
£37.95   Used & New from: £20.09

Verde Que Te Quero Rosa
3.  Verde Que Te Quero Rosa by Cartola
The list author says:

Tribalistas (Monte, Atunes, Brown)
4.  Tribalistas (Monte, Atunes, Brown) by Marisa Monte

£15.08   Used & New from: £3.00
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Publico
5.  Publico by Adriana Calcanhoto
The list author says:
  "One of the most interesting singer-songwriters to emerge from the RS state here in a live performance. Rythm is key but the lyrics are sophisticated: Tropicalist, dadaist, poetic and back."
£16.10   Used & New from: £3.12

Nara
6.  Nara by Nara Leao
The list author says:
  "The female voice most associated with Bossa Nova inside Brazil, here in a mix of Samba-Canções and standards of the Bossa before they became widely known."
Used & New from: £15.80

"A Divina Comédia Ou Ando Meio Desligado"
7.  "A Divina Comédia Ou Ando Meio Desligado" by Os Mutantes
The list author says:
  "The most (in)famous brazilian cult band ever run amok on LSD, creativity and distortion. Perhaps their most eclectic studio album still with Rita Lee. Blues, folk, pop-rock, mock-salsa, you name it..."
Used & New from: £23.00
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Carioca
8.  Carioca by Chico Buarque
The list author says:
  "Prolific singer-songwriter's most recent album. The lyrics are still a major part of what makes you fall for MPB in general. Here it's a 'sine qua non' factor. They are that good, yes."
£14.66   Used & New from: £10.34
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Maricotinha
9.  Maricotinha by Maria Bethania
The list author says:
  "First album for Brazil's top chanteuse on an indie label after 40 years with a major. The repertoire is superbly chosen, the voice and presence have matured impressively"
Out of stock

As Quatro Estacoes Ao Vivo
10.  As Quatro Estacoes Ao Vivo by Legiao Urbana
The list author says:
  "Formed in Brasília under heavy influence of the english new wave, by the time this retrospective was published their rock had absorbed mpb, folk and literary influences."
Used & New from: £124.95
