He has now shifted to a more acoustic, folk sound, with a voice that is still reminiscent of his past punk days. His latest album, <em>Tape Deck Heart</em>, was recorded in the U.S. Thu, 29 Aug 2013 18:48:31 +0000 David Dye 34291 at http://wemu.org Frank Turner On World Cafe Roots Of Samba: Exploring Historic Pelourinho In Salvador, Brazil http://wemu.org/post/roots-samba-exploring-historic-pelourinho-salvador-brazil The first stop on <em>World Cafe</em>'s trip to Brazil was in Pelourinho, the old part of the city of Salvador on the country's northeast coast. In this installment of <em>Sense of Place: Rio</em>, <em>World Cafe</em> captures a performance from the brother-duo Samba Chula de São Braz, in an effort to learn more about the samba style.<p>The two oldest styles of samba, <em>samba chula</em> and <em>samba de roda</em>, started with African slaves who were brought to Salvador in the Brazilian state of Bahia.
