"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."
