Synopsis: At the second International Song Festival in 1967, Milton Nascimento had three songs accepted for competition. He had no intention of performing them -- he hated the idea of intense competition. In fact, Nascimento might never have appeared at all if Eumir Deodato hadn't threatened to write the arrangements for his songs if he didn't perform at least two of them. Nascimento went on to win the festival's best performer award, all three of his songs were included soon afterward on his first album, and the rest is history. This is only one anecdote from The Brazilian Sound, an encyclopedic 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, U.S. fans like Lyle Mays, George Duke, and Paul Winter, executive Andre Midani, and music historian Zuza Homem de Mello, just to name a few. First published in 1991, The Brazilian Sound received enthusiastic attention both in the united States and abroad. For this new edition, the authors have expanded their examination of the historical roots of Brazilian music, added new photographs, amplified 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 included profiles of significant emerging artists like Marisa Monte, Chico Cesar, and Daniela Mercury. Clearly written and lavishly illustrated with 167 photographs, The Brazilian Sound is packed with facts, explanations, and fascinating stories. For the Latin music aficionado or the novice who wants to learn more, the book also provides a glossary, a bibliography, and an extensive discography containing 1,000 entries, including selected videos and web sites.

Book Description:

Brazilian music has exponentially increased in its popularity over the decade since the last edition of The Brazilian Sound was published. 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 Gilberto Gil and the mixing of bossa with electronica. This clearly written and lavishly illustrated encyclopedic survey features dozens of new entries and photographs, an extensive glossary of Brazilian music terms and more.

This edition of The Brazilian Sound contains new discussions of:
· musica sertaneja and musica caipira
· Brazilian funk and rap/hip-hop
· electronic dance music
· young contemporary musicians inspired by traditional music
· the rise of new samba artists
· Plus! an updated bibliography and glossary, and a new list of Web resources
