Desafinado is dedicated to Latin jazz. The title of the programme is inspired by the composition by the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim. "Desafinado" means "off key". Desafinado is otherness. This is the idea behind the programme - to explore the exotics of all varieties of Latin jazz.
The variety of music you will hear here is enormous - Brazilian, Afro-Cuban and American jazz, salsa, mambo, tango, authentic Latin music, bop, post bop with a Latin touch, jazzy house with Brazilian rhythms, and compositions by non-American artists inspired by Latin culture.
You will learn more about exotic music styles, dances and instruments in our Latino Guide.
Desafinado is on air Saturdays from 11 a.m. till 12. The repeat is on Mondays from 9 p.m. till 10 p.m.
