Brazilian Popular Music: Samba to Hip-Hop

Brazilian Popular Music: Samba to Hip-Hop

Diaz-Ayala Collection, Florida International University

Brazil, the largest country in Latin America, stands out from the rest of the continent through its heritage of the Portuguese language, and the importance of the African diaspora to its culture, and especially its music. Professor Tom Moore from the FIU Libraries Sound & Image Department will guide a whirlwind tour through the Brazilian popular music of the twentieth century, presenting genres including choro (popular instrumental music), samba, bossa nova, MPB, rap, and funk. This lecture is part of the Green Library: Listening Closely series and will take place in the Green Library, room GL835.
