We’ve been hearing a lot recently about Brazilian artist Carlinhos Brown. So we were psyched to see a story in the ‘New York Times’, about how the singer-songwriter-percussionist has changed his neighborhood of in Salvador, Brazil’s third-largest city. Reporting from Candyall Ghetto Square, the Candeal Pequeno studio where Brown records with his percussion band Timbalada, the Times talked to Brown about the 15-year success story of his Pracatum School, which teaches music to children in the community. Now that’s music to our ears.
