Among Betto Arcos' new music picks from Brazil is percussionist Wilson Das Neves, who has been an active and integral part of Rio De Janeiro's music scene since he began playing professionally in the 1950s.

Over the years, musicians from Stan Getz to Herb Alpert to David Byrne have felt the lure of Brazilian music. World music DJ Betto Arcos just got back from a trip to Brazil, where he gorged on new sounds, and he's been kind enough to bring some of them back to share with All Things Considered. Hear his conversation with host Arun Rath at the audio link.
