Notes & Reviews:
Whoever watches the Samba Schools parading in Rio de Janeiro nowadays may not perceive the Samba's musical richness both as a musical and literary genre. The Samba is, however, in its origins a very sophisticated musical form from a poetic, instrumental and harmonic viewpoint. A typical expression of urban popular culture, its origins go back to the most popular styles among Rio de Janeiro's inhabitants, once the country's capital city. The classically trained Brazilian singer Cristiane Roncaglio is also an enthusiast of Brazilian music, Bossa Nova as well as Musica Popular Brasileira.Notes & Reviews:
