All eyes are on Brazil this month with the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Now open your ears to the sounds of Brazil with this Dad Rock primer on Tropicalia.

This is some of the coolest rock and pop you'll hear, championed several years ago by David Byrne, born out of political strife. And it shows that Brazilian music is much more than "The Girl From Ipanema" (although that's a pretty chill song too, we must admit).
