To all of you that want to get into that groovy African mood because you're just feeling this World Cup in your soul, you must check out AM Roots' World Cup inspired Mix. There is one each from DJ Nunas and DJ Filipe Narciso. DJ Nunas focuses on Afro-beat and has some sublime stuff from Salif Keita, Fela Kuti, AM Roots of course, and even Shakira and Freshlyground's World Cup Anthem for good measure. It's great for those dead times in between games, to keep the energy alive. DJ Filipe's Mix is a collection of vintage kizomba tracks, if you're in that sort of mood. A trip down memory lane, if you will. Both of them flow nicely, as the song selection is top notch. Links below:

Caipirinha Lounge is all about music in Portuguese or by Lusophone artists. It's born out of a sincere belief that Lusophone music should reach a much larger audience. The lounge features music from Brazil, Angola, Portugal, Guine-Bissau, Cabo Verde, São Tomé & Principe, Mozambique, Galicia, and even Timor-Leste. Occasionally, there will be posts about singers so good that the fact that they do not sing in Portuguese is momentarily overlooked.
The purpose of this bilingual blog is purely educational. Plug in your earphones and hear rhythms from places you have never heard of, from artists you have never heard about, sung in the world's most beautiful language. If you like a song, you can download it by right clicking on it and then clicking "save target as". If you like it a lot, buy the cd, support the artist, keep good music alive.
If you are a singer or a label and want a particular song taken down, please contact me. Or, if you have music you think I will enjoy, do send! claudio.silva(at)caipirinhalounge.com
