Music sample

"The Brazilian" is an instrumental piece by the English band Genesis that concludes their 1986 album Invisible Touch. The song features experimental sounds and effects.[1]

The band wrote two instrumental pieces for the album, the other being "Do The Neurotic". "Do The Neurotic" became the B Side to "Throwing It All Away" in the US and "In Too Deep" in the UK and was released on the Genesis Archive #2. It received a Grammy Award nomination in 1987 for Best Pop Instrumental Performance (Orchestra, Group or Soloist) and is also used on the Live at Wembley DVD for the menu music.

The tune was featured in the animated movie When the Wind Blows, which was scored by Roger Waters. It was also used in an episode of Magnum, P.I. called "Unfinished Business". The track was also used extensively by the BBC in their TV coverage of the 1987 World Athletics Championships.
