Songs for Inspiration

We walk, slowly, towards the middle of the first month of the year. Suddenly, it is not so easy to find an empty seat on the bus, and a city that was empty resumes its topography of traffic and queues. The waves of the sea and the singing birds become distant memories. Your tan, won at so much cost, has already packed their bags and left for somewhere better.

Well, don’t be afraid. The first month is always the most difficult. Soon, the noise of the keyboard will stop bothering you and you will get into the hustle and bustle of everyday life. And, while that moment doesn’t arrive, we asked three artists to create special playlists to share with you, using songs that they hear in the studio, in moments of inspiration, and in the wanderings of life. Tom Zé, Daft Punk, The Supremes, Ricky Martin, Nação Zumbi, Velha Guarda da Portella. There is enough for everyone, and enough music to dance until Carnival arrives.

With you, Marcius Galan, Lenora de Barros and Marina Rheingantz.
