Reissued in Celebration of Luaka Bop's 25th Anniversary

Originally issued in 1989, Brazil Classics 1: Beleza Tropical was compiled by David Byrne and was Luaka Bop's 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 who were turned on to Brazilian culture by this landmark release. 

"These songs represent but a small sampling of the fruits of a flowering in Brazilian creativity. The innovations in structure, lyrics and arrangements, combined with a very restrained but heartfelt intensity, are unique to Brazilian pop music...and in their own way, are as radical, seductive and beautiful as the best English language pop.

"Many of the artists on this compilation are cultural heroes in Brazil (and deserve to be here, too). Their concerts are attended by young and old alike...and 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
