The 101 Mix series is back, today going to Brazil!

Some Carioca funk from Rio, music from Salvador in Bahia in northeast Brazil, MPB, current Rap and Pop, Forro music from the countryside, Jazz, Rock and of course plenty of Samba.
2020 has been a tough year, and we're not over it yet. But we always have music to make things just a little bit better so for today's episode, sit back and enjoy great new releases by Gary Bartz & Maisha, Makaya McCraven, some incredible South African Jazz on a new reissue of Dudu Pukwana & The Spears, some very wild Rock/Gamelan fusion from Indonesia, the start or Mr. OK Jazz' 'Summer of Samba' and lots more.
