- unfortunately only infrequently but guaranteed quality: ichi.one's Homecookin' mixes (NB: just released great mix #65 'Insomnia')
- a huge selection of diverse mixes with daily updates and good search options: samurai.fm
- hopefully with a higher release frequency during winter: Dirk Rumpff's Berlin-based Offtrack radio show.
- weekly classic now on BBC Radio 6 Music: Gilles Peterson - T.S.F.K.A.W.W. ("the show formerly known as Worldwide") show
- the traditional Soulsearching show by Michael Ruetten out of Frankfurt which appears about monthly and has been going on for years, almost decades.
- for an almost weekly dose of house and elecronica: compost black label sessions
- for less regularly released mixes by individuals and to round off the meta-mixtape: Dom Duchamp's great Adtrax series, covering a wide range of music styles, and Jazzanova's Alex Barck putting some of his diverse sets on Soundcloud.

All three Brazilian artists in Germany, Amaral in Hamburg, Paula Mastroberti in Berlin and João Montanaro in Munich chose Germans on bikes as a Leitmotif (for example, here, here and here) . Conversely, all three German artists in Brazil, Aisha Franz in Salvador, Birgit Weyhe in São Paulo and Mawil in Porto Alegre repeatedly get inspired by the fresh fruits of Brazil (for example here, here and here).

His brilliant impressions and beautiful sketches can be found at http://blog.goethe.de/osmose/.Osmose Blog is bigger than I thought and it includes sketches from 3 Brazilian comic artists in Germany and 3 German ones in Brazil. Hence, Mawil might not have visited Salvador (yet) and the drawing I uploaded was by Aisha Franz.
