Description - Brazilian Popular Music and Globalization by Charles A. Perrone

This collection of articles by leading scholars traces the history of Brazilian pop music through the 20th century. It focuses on how traditional Brazilian musical styles have ben influenced by international popular music - including jazz, rock, and rap-to form new hybrid styles. Since the heyday of Carmen Miranda in the 1940s, Brazilian influences have been felt in the US, and this two-way street has resulted in an explosion of rich musical styles. The samba and bossa nova crazes that swept both countries are but two of the many examples of cross cultural influence. With today's emphaisi on Global Pop and World Music, there is a great interest in Latin American musical forms. For anyone interested in the history and scope of Brazilian music, this volume is a must read.
