Caipirinha Appreciation Society

controls Filter
The best in Brazilian music broadcast from Rio and London.

Brought to you from two continents, the Caipirinhia Appreciation Society (MdC Suingue and Kika Serra) cover the latest records from Brazil, revealing the scene behind the cliche and presenting a whole world of underexposed music. Brazilian journalist MdC Suingue (Portuguese for "Swing") has been living in London since 1998, where he created CAS to show that there is a lot more to Brazilian music than what the major record companies would have you believe. Kika Serra, who some years ago traded London back for Rio de Janeiro, joined CAS in 2006, when the show became a bi-national broadcast.
