AllMusic Review by

Putumayo Presents: Brazilian Beat gathers up 11 prime examples of why Musica Brasileira is as vibrant and forward thinking as was in its 1960s and '70s heydays. Highlights include Tamy's intoxicating "Samba na Mao eu Tenho," Karla Sabah's slick, urban take on Jorge Ben's "Mas Que Nada," and MPB legend Marcos Valle having a go at MPB legend Chico Buarque's "Partido Alto."
