Beleza Tropical Compiled By David Byrne

“Beleza Tropical was our first release. In some ways it started the trend to compile music from other places. It was a huge success, selling over 350,000 copies, and is still referred to today by many people turned on to Brazilian culture by this landmark release. Many of the aritsts on this compilation are cultural heroes in Brazil (and deserve to be here, too). Their concerts are attended by young and old alike... almost everyone knows their names. Their music is extremely sophisticated, yet it appeals to almost everyone. They play to sold-out shows in Paris and Tokyo, and yet they represent but a small part of the variety of contemporary styles that can be found in a country as vast as Brazil” - David Byrne
