Summary Bossa mundo: Brazilian music in transnational media industries focuses on watershed moments of musical breakthrough across the world over more than a half century--from bossa nova in the 1960s through to the streaming music era. Reexamining the political meaning of mass-mediated music, author K.E. Goldschmitt demonstrates that the mediation of Brazilian music in an incresingly crowded transnational marketplace has lasting consequences for Brazilian creative output. Featuring interviews with key figures in the transnational circulation of Brazilian music, and discussions of well-known musicians and artists who redefine what it means to be a Brazilian musician in the twenty-first century, Bossa mundo shows the pernicious effects of branding diversity on musicians and audiences alike.--Page [4] of cover.
