Episode 47: Folk Music of Brazil


I am so excited to kick off a very special summer series on the podcast today — Around the World with Busy Kids Love Music.

With each new episode (new episodes air every 2 weeks), we’ll be traveling to a new destination and learning about that particular place’s folk music. As you listen to each episode, you’ll collect a stamp to add to your passport while you work your way around the globe and learn about the incredible artists, cultures and communities that have contributed to folk music. Use the links below to download your passport and this episode’s stamp — from Brazil!
