Recently, I started to use Youtube to listen to music. The idea never seemed right for me, but it seems that Google is monetizing videos that are essentially only music for the benefit of the authors not for that one who uploaded the video, which is good (and maybe sustainable) initiative.

Anyway, this post is about a really good music channel I found on Youtube: Sesc Instrumental. It is a series of live presentations of Brazilian bands playing instrumental music for about 1 hour. The archive covers music from Bossa Nova to more experimental jazz, from chorinho (a kind of instrumental samba) to progressive rock. All videos are legally published and with high quality! It is a good place to find good and non-famous Brazilian music.

I could give a lot of examples here, but I chose the one bellow because of the title of the music "Meu fraco é café forte", whose translation is "My weak point is strong coffee", composed and played by Jaiz in 4.

Other suggestions from this channel: Tom Zé, Carlos Malta and Funk como le gusta.
