Brutality Garden: Tropicalia & the Emergence of a Brazilian Counterculture

by Christopher Dunn - £41.50  University of North Carolina Press (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780807849767 | ISBN 10: 0807849766

In the late 1960s, Brazilian artists forges a watershed cultural movement known as Tropicalia. With key manifestations in theatre, cinema, visual arts, literature and especially popular music, Tropicalia dynamicaly articulated the conflicts and aspirations of a generation of young, urban Brazilians in the most violent and repressive days of the military regime that governed Brazil from 1964 to 1985. Focusing on a group of musicians from Bahia, an impoverished state in northeastern Brazil, Christopher Dunn reveals how artists including Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Tom Ze created this movement together with the musical and poetic vanguards of Sao Paulo, Brazil\'s most modern and industrialised city.
