Bossa Mundo chronicles how Brazilian music has been central to Brazil's national brand in the U.S. and U.K. since the early 1960s. Through in-depth historical and ethnographic analyses of watershed moments of musical breakthrough, it explores not just what the music may have represented at that moment, but details its deeper cultural impact.
