Zuco 103: Changing the Rhythms of Brazil

Music reviewer Charles de Ledesma reviews the CD Outro Lado by the band Zuco 103. They are a trio from Amsterdam, headed by a Brazilian musician named Lillian Viera. She and her band incorporate the traditional musical forms of Brazil — bossa nova and samba — with electronica, funk and jazz. They are at the forefront of a musical movement in Europe called "NU Brazilian", which features this hybrid sound of European dance music and Brazilian rhythms.
