TO FIND OUT WHAT people are truly grooving to in Brazil these days, Julie Schwietert heads down to this vibrant country to round up a list of artists such as Marcelo D2, Alceu Valenca, and Siba E a Fuloresta, whose sounds are currently permeating its airwaves.

Next up is Chile where Matt Dillinger introduces us to the freshest grooves – the politically-charged melodies of Inti-Illimani, the retro-pop tunes of Los Bunkers and the emotion-laden, vibrating wails of Lucybell.
