The song reflects: around the critical status of popular music in Brazil





Summary In the 20th century, popular music was Brazil’s strongest artistic language and one of Brazil’s great aesthetic forces. Since the 30s, she has held an important position in cultural debates and nationalist projects and, over the years, expanded its reach with the progress of the media. That investment was still, beyond what was expected, in the production of a critical song pattern. So in the 60, like modern art, song became reflective, operating critically in relation to itself and to the cultural and political context. The reflective component of the song seems to have considerably widened its cultural scope. This is so that it does not seem unreasonable to point to a deep connection between the song and a certain national construction horizon. In this work, we try to create an overview of the development of Brazilian popular music in order to clarify this process and possibly allow new approaches to think of its critical possibilities from its aesthetic dimension.
