Brazilian jive : from samba to bossa and rap by Dave Treece( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Brazil grows in stature as a global power, more and more people are discovering the country's fascinating culture, especially the striking exuberance and inventiveness of Brazilian popular music. In Brazilian Jive, David Treece uncovers the genius of Brazilian song, both as a sophisticated articulate art form crafted out of the dialogue between music and language and as a powerfully eloquent expression of the country's social and political history. Focusing on the cultural struggles of making music in Brazil, Treece traces the rise of samba through the bossa nova revolution of the late 1950s to the emergence of rap in the 1990s. He describes how Brazilian music grew out of the pain and dispossession of slavery and, inspired by African traditions, how it celebrates new ways of moving freely in time and space. Redolent with the rhythms and tones of the modern, the Brazilian soundscape also expresses the country's dissonances and contradictions, while the conversation between melody and word often signifies a larger dialogue between its artistic and political cultures

Os dragões não conhecem o paraíso by Caio Fernando Abreu( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Les fruits de l'œuvre de Caio Fernando, hors des paradis tropicaux au goût des appétits européens sont ceux d'un Brésil en décomposition, de carnavals macabres masqués par le Carnaval. Les fruits des gigantesques centres urbains tels que Sao Paulo : anonymat, solitudes, précarité, violence, prostitutions; intoxication par toutes les drogues, au propre et au figuré. L'écriture est impressionnée par ce regard, comme une plaque photographique: elle ne décrit pas, elle est violence, clichés, laideur, solitude, abandon, folie. Mais sa lecture, par un effet de paradoxe hautement littéraire, parle maîtrise, poésie, beauté, solidarité, lucidité, et une histoire horrible devient belle. Des enfers de Caio Fernando on sort, béant. La nouvelle, forme par excellence du monde latino-américain, est le terrain naturel de son univers fragmenté. Ici, rien ne dure, rien ne s'affirme, tout lasse, casse et passe. Dans l'ironie mortelle est la vivante simplicité." Claire Cayron. -- Back cover

Atlantic Hotel by João Gilberto Noll( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Just who is the narrator of João Gilberto Noll's dark and mysterious Atlantic Hotel? First he books a room where a murder has just occurred, claiming he's just arrived from the airport. But then he suddenly leaves the hotel, telling a cab driver he's an alcoholic headed for detox. After that he hops on an all-night bus headed across Brazil, where he begins to seduce a beautiful American woman. Next he says he's a soap opera actor, which is a bad idea--it makes the people he's hitchhiking with want to kill him. Then he impersonates a priest. He travels to yet another town, and this time he knocks on a very wrong door. The man who opens it has him in the crosshairs of a gun--the narrator passes out, and when he awakes something terrible is happening to him..."--Amazon.com
