<i>Red Hot + Rio 2</i> Tropicália Tribute Compilation Tracklist Revealed, Collaborations Abound” src=”” /></span><br /><span style=

“Red Hot + Rio 2,” a modern tribute to late 60’s Brazilian Tropicália
movement and produced in partnership with Entertainment One Music is set
to be released on June 28, 2011. You can hear Mia Doi Todd’s duet with
Jose Gonzalez on “UM GIRASSOL DA CÔR DO SEU CABELO” here:

The album will shed new light on the songs of this influential,
politically charged era, which changed the culture of the country forever.

The compilation features over 30 original collaborations between Brazil’s
legendary musicians and today’s international indie artists including John
Legend, Os Mutantes, Mia Doi Todd (who contributes two tracks), Devendra
Banhart, Caetano Veloso, Dirty Projectors, Seu Jorge, Beck, Bebel
Gilberto, José Gonzalez, Beirut, Tom Zé, Of Montreal, Marisa Monte Gogol
Bordello, DJ Dolores, Aloe Blacc, Angelique Kidjo, Rita Lee, Madlib, Money
Mark, Céu, Apollo Nove, Mayra Andrade, Trio Mocotó, Tha Boogie, Alice
Smith, Carlinhos Brown, Los Van Van, Brazilian Girls, Marcos Valle, St.
Vincent, Neon Indian, Forró In The Dark, Javelin, and many more.

Red Hot + Rio 2 is the natural successor to the 1996 original Bossa Nova
inspired Red Hot + Rio, which Vogue called the album “the latest and the
hippest” while Entertainment Weekly said it was “an inspiring and modern
sounding tribute.

As with all Red Hot projects, proceeds from Rio 2 will benefit HIV/AIDS
related charities. The first Red Hot + Rio raised over $1 million dollars
as did the organization’s most recent album, Dark Was The Night (featuring
2011 Grammy winner for best album, Arcade Fire, The National, Feist,
Grizzly Bear and Bon Iver among others). Since its inception, Red Hot
Organization – a not-for-profit production company – has produced over 16
albums and donated over $10 million dollars to worthy organizations,
causes and projects around the world. Its mission is to raise awareness
and money to fight AIDS/ HIV and related health and social issues. To date
the Red Hot organization has sold more than three million albums and has
co-produced performances at Brooklyn Academy of Music, Radio City Music
Hall, Central Park Summer Stage and more.
