Alexandre's album recommendation for the project: Baden Powell & Vinícius de Moraes- "Afro-Samba"
Keep in mind this album was released back in 1966.
If you like bossa nova, this album should be in your collection, since it is considered one of the fundamentals in the history of brazilian music.
In this album, Vinícius de Moraes, (an important figure within bossa nova) collaborates with guitarist Baden Powell, performing the songs that became classics and iconic sounds of this beautiful country.
