Música Brasileira: A History of Popular Music and the People of Brazil

Front Cover
Marion Boyars, 1993 - Architecture - 306 pages

Brazilian music is more than a soundtrack for the streets and dancehalls of Rio, more than the cool bossas ans sambas of the late-night jazz clubs. It is a music of the people. Musica Brasileira takes the rader through the dense and intricate landscapes of Brazilian popular music.

A well-researched and ambitious guide to Brazilian musical history, although rather dull reading. Its coverage of music after the 1970s is rather weak. For a more entertaining and up-to-date guide, I would recommend [The Brazilian Sound: Samba, Bossa Nova and the Popular Music of Brazil]. Read full review
