Musica Brasileira: A History of Popular Music and the People of Brazil Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The whole astonishing range of Brazilian music is revealed…"—Stage and Television Today.

The first paperback edition of this study of Brazilian music, hailed as the long awaited, comprehensive, and scholarly history of this complex subject when it appeared in hardback in 1994. Schreiner takes us from the merging of Amerindian, African and European cultures under the Portuguese colonists to the evolution of the many rhythms and dance forms associated with popular Brazilian music. The choro, the samba, the bossa nova are coolly and carefully unravelled and the book ends on the contemporary music scene of the 1990s.
