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. Brazilian Jive focuses on the cultural struggles that music-making in Brazil represents, from the rise of samba, through the bossa nova revolution of the late 1950s, to the emergence of rap in the 1990s. It describes how the music sprang out of the pain and dispossession of slavery and as a result, inspired by African traditions and conceptions of the world, it celebrates new ways of moving freely in time and space.
