Made in Brazil: Studies in Popular Music serves as a comprehensive and thorough introduction to the history, sociology, and musicology of twentieth-century Brazilian popular music. The volume consists of essays by scholars of Brazilian music, and covers the major figures, styles, and social contexts of pop music in Brazil. Each essay provides adequate context so readers understand why the figure or genre under discussion is of lasting significance to Brazilian popular music. The book first presents a general description of the history and background of popular music in Brazil, followed by essays that are organized into thematic sections: Samba and Choro; History, Memory, and Representations; Scenes and Artists; and Music, Market and New Media.

"This book is a major contribution to popular music studies, not only because it presents new data on Brazilian popular musics but also because of the new insights it brings into this field of study. Made in Brazil draws a complex picture of contemporaneity, stressing the confrontation between 'roots' and 'networks,' 'national' and 'trans-national,' and the instrumental character of popular music in the establishment of groups and social classes." -Pedro Felix, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, IASPM@Journal vol.5 no.2
