I was introduced via email to David McLoughlin from the Brasil Music Exchange. We’ve sent a few emails back and forth and he’s sent me a link to their new compilation of new jazz (above).
This seems like a good link, though I don’t quite know what the connection is yet. Just a conversation I’d like to have. I suspect there’s some mutual advantage to be had from connecting the Fora do Eixo research I’m doing with the agency that promotes Brazilian music on an international level.
I suspect the advantage for me is just better understanding the context and infrastructure of the music industries in Brazil. And hopefully there’s something that will come out of that that’s useful for everyone else concerned.
