Created in April of 1989, BRAZZIL has been a national respected link between Brazil and all those — Brazilian or not — who feel a kinship with the Brazilian way of life, politics, economy, culture, and soul. Going beyond the report of facts, BRAZZIL brings the whys, the hows and thens.
Note: BRAZZIL Magazine is not being printed at present. We are exclusively online.
Periodicity: BRAZZIL is published once a month, 12 times a year.
