Caipirinha Appreciation Society

controls Filter
Brazil, beyond the clichés.

The Brazilian identity is the result of a long simmering of ethnic and cultural influences. Brazilian music is the utmost product of that melting pot.

Thus the Caipirinha Appreciation Society’s mission: to spread awareness that Brazilian culture has a lot more to show for itself than a handful of artists who have gained international acclaim.

Modern or traditional, urban or rural: there are no boundaries to our relentless efforts to bring to you the best that Brazil has to offer.
