Synopsis:

Here is an illustrated guide to the rich music of Brazil—its history, styles, performers, instruments, and impact on musicians around the globe. From the boisterous rhythms of samba to the cool elegance of bossa nova to the hot percussion of Bahian axé music, The Brazilian Sound celebrates a world music phenomenon. This revised and expanded edition includes discussions of developments in samba and other key genres, the rise of female singer-songwriters in recent years, new works by established artists like Milton Nascimento and Marisa Monte, and the mixing of bossa with electronica. This clearly written and lavishly illustrated encyclopedic survey features new entries and photographs, an extensive glossary of Brazilian music terms and more.

This edition of The Brazilian Sound contains new discussions of: 

·  música sertaneja and música caipira

·  Brazilian funk, rap/hip-hop, and electronic dance music

·  important new samba and MPB artists

·  Plus! An updated bibliography and glossary, and a list of Web resources
