Celebrating the Music of Dori Caymmi

This week Rhythm Planet features the music of Dori Caymmi, one of my favorite Brazilian artists of all time. He grew up in music and was already creating complex arrangements and launching the careers of big stars like Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa. A generation before his father, Dorival Caymmi, launched the career of Carmen Miranda, the first superstar from our big southern neighbor. Dori will perform and talk about his life in music at the Anne and Jerry Moss stage at New Roads School in Santa Monica on Friday, September 27th.
