Alternative Brazilian music is becoming more and more popular among record collectors and brazilophiles. Tropicalia and Brazilian Psychodelia are quite well known outside Brazil these days. However, there are some hidden gems from the eighties that have been overlooked by most foreign Brazilian music lovers.

Ok, we understand, it was the eighties with its quirky sounds and textures. But there are exceptions, and among them, a true outsider called Itamar Assump?ao, whose genious not even Brazilians are fully aware of. This week, the CAS brings you a collection of the Itamar Assump?ao songs you can’t do without.
