Made in Brazil serves as a comprehensive and rigorous introduction to the history, sociology, and musicology of contemporary Brazilian popular music. Each essay, written by a leading scholar of Brazilian music, covers the major figures, styles, and social contexts of pop music in Brazil and provides adequate context so readers understand why the figure or genre under discussion is of lasting significance. The book first presents a general description of the history and background of popular music, followed by essays organized into thematic sections: Samba and Choro; History, Memory, and Representations; Scenes and Artists; and Music, Market and New Media.
