Canta Brasil is a brazilian music radio program on KKUP 91.5 FM in San Jose, California USA
Canta Brasil has been on the KKUP 91.5 FM Sundays from 6 to 8PM since 1985 serving the south San Francisco bay, Monterey bay, and the Central Coast. We are three DJ's: Larzinho, Maria José, and Xuxu (John).
We try to bring our listeners a variety of music from Brazil and not normally on the Top 40 of the Brazilian pop charts. We try and bring you alternative music of Brazil as well as the traditional, regional and popular. We try hard to keep on the cutting edge of what is happening in the very dynamic Brazilian musical scene while keeping a keen perspective on the past.
KKUP is completely listener sponsored. Thus, we are not mandated to play any particular artist, style or label. We, as the hosts and programmers, keep total discretion of what we play and work hard to keep the show interesting and musically provocative.
This site is still under development, but you will find here podcasts of our show, playlists, CD and DVD recommendations, local community events, concerts, video and artist links and how to contact us.
We are also on www.mixcloud.com!! Just search on Canta Brasil!
Update: January 3rd 2014 updated with new shows and playlists.
