First heard on the Brasil 2Mil compilation, the late Suba was part of a new generation of South American musicians (although he was originally from Central Europe) who married airy melodies and percussion with the electronic scene. His music worked especially well because he was a trained musician, and he contributed not only programming but also keyboards to this record. Aided by various vocalists and percussionists, he created grooves that were a million miles from Latin dance but spoke both to Brazilians and club goers. There was a lushness to his sound that captivated, and when the percussion exploded, it came on like fireworks, not a firestorm. This is the sound of one of the world's biggest cities, where darkness can lurk even under the blue skies. It's a shame there'll be no more music from Suba. --Chris Nickson

...A journey with Paulo Coelho
Today I am reviewing "The Pilgrimage", a book by the well-loved author Paulo Coelho.
This book was given to me by a friend who is a massive fan of his works.
Who is Pauloe Coelho?
Paulo Coelho was born in 1947 in Rio de Janero (Brazil) and has written quite a few
bestselling books. His works are partly autobiographic. He has recieved many awards
Advantages: None Disadvantages: Absolute tripe of the lowest calibre
...The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho, is billed as a modern classic, yet I find it difficult to discern why. It has the feel of a fable; from a time as hazy as the desert in which it is set, and carries the lessons on life one would expect from such a parable. The feelings of distant memory that it creates, however, fashion a gap between the book and the reader.
It begins with Santiago, a shepherd...
