Saturdays 10 - 11 p.m.
- Hosted by Sergio Mielniczenko
Brazilian Hour promotes the best Brazilian music and culture all around the world. Produced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Brazil.
About the host:
If not for Sergio Mielniczenko, the world of Brazilian music might very well have been summed up in one sweet, albeit Muzak-worn samba: Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto’s beguiling 1964 recording “The Girl From Ipanema". For nearly three decades, Mielniczenko has performed yeoman work as DJ, emcee, and curator, spreading the word of the breadth of Brazilian music.
