This half-hour documentary features Charlie Gillett in conversation with David Byrne and Susan Young. Gillett explores Byrne's interest in music composed during Brazil's military regime of the 1960's -1980’s, and his aim to introduce a wider audience to this music by compiling a series of albums featuring artists from that era. Byrne asked Young to direct the animated film Beleza Tropical (Umbabarauma) to accompany the first of these albums. She describes the making of the film and her response to this genre of music. The soundtrack features various artists from the album Beleza Tropical: Brazil Classics 1.
