The Brazilian Sound Samba, Bossa Nova and the Popular Music of Brazil
By Chris McGowan, Ricardo Pessanha

An encyclopaedic survey of Brazilian popular music that ranges over samba, bossa nova, MPB, jazz and instrumental music, and tropical rock, as well as the music of Bahia and neo-Afro trends, and the music of the Northeast. The authors have interviewed a wide variety of performers like Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, and Airto Moreira, US fans like Lyle Mays, George Duke and Paul Winter, executive Andre Midani and music historian Zuza Homem de Mello. In this new edition, first published in 1991, the authors have expanded their examination of the historical roots of Brazilian music, added new photographs, expanded their discussion of social issues like racism, updated the maps and added a new final chapter highlighting the most recent trends in Brazilian music. The authors have expanded their coverage of the axe music movement, and includes profiles of significant emerging artists like Marisa Monte, Chico Cosar and Daniela Mercury.
