About this title


"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.

About the Author:

Claus Schreiner was born in 1943 and was raised in Berlin. He has been actively involved with the Latin American music scene since the early 1970s, producing many programmes on the subject for German radio. He has not only met and interviewed many of the great stars of Brazilian Popular Music but released recordings of their work on his own Tropical Music label.
