    História da música popular brasileira (em português)
    History of brazilian popular music (in English)
    Homage to Tom Jobim,
    He is Antonio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim born the 25th of January 1927 in Rio de Janeiro. He is a quiet and shy musician plunking on the keys of a piano. He is an athlete, always at the beach, however as a result of an accident this son of Ipanema submerges himself into music. He eventually emerges with his signature sound and will leave a mark on the world forever - more info
    10 years without Tom Jobim
    Há dez anos a música brasileira perdia um de seus maiores expoentes, um embaixador que a levou aos maiores palcos do planeta. Antônio Carlos Brasileiro de Almeida Jobim fez da paixão por seu país a sua própria obra, mas, caprichosamente, foi em Nova York que o compositor morreu, no dia 8 de dezembro de 2004. Vítima de duas paradas cardíacas sofridas enquanto convalescia de uma operação para retirada de um tumor na bexiga, Tom Jobim deixou um legado de valor inestimável à música do Brasil.

    Brazilian Popular Music: An IntroductionIn my view, Brazilian popular music began at the precise moment when, in the slave quarter of a mansion somewhere, the Indians started to imitate the slaves as they clapped their hands and the white colonizers abandoned themselves to the magical, mellifluous singing of the slave women. This admixture, sensually and slowly matured over four centuries, gave rise to the choro in Rio de Janeiro, a period in which the maxixe, the frevo and the samba also began to emerge.
    Since then, the hundred years which began with the Abolition of Slavery in 1888 and the Proclamation of the Republic in 1889, have witnessed the consolidation of a cultural revolution that has brought us redemption: the dramatic ascent and shaping of Brazil's mulatto civilization. And from it sprang that civilization's firstborn, its most cherished and all-embracing daughter, Brazilian popular music.
    http://www.brazil.org.uk/mpb/indexen.htm
    A historia da musica Garota de Ipanema:
    Vinicius de Moraes fez uma primeira versão para a letra desta música, que então se chamava "Menina que passa":
    Vinha cansado de tudo / De tantos caminhos / Tão sem poesia / Tão sem passarinhos / Com mêdo da vida / Com mêdo de amar Quando na tarde vazia / Tão linda no espaço / Eu vi a menina / Que vinha num passo / Cheio de balanço / Caminho do mar

    Mas nem Tom nem Vinicius gostaram da letra. Mais tarde, Vinicius fez a versão definitiva, inspirado pela graça de Heloísa Eneida Menezes Paes Pinto, que frequentemente passava em
    frente ao Bar Veloso (hoje chamado "Garota de Ipanema"), em Ipanema, na esquina das ruas Prudente de Morais e Montenegro (atualmente Rua Vinicius de Moraes). Tom e Vinicius eram presenças frequentes no bar, com mesinhas na calçada e um ótimo chope. Heloísa morava na Rua Montenegro 22, entre a Prudente de Morais e a praia. Dois anos e meio depois é que Heloisa soube que suas caminhadas pela Rua Montenegro haviam feito dela a musa desta canção. Nesta época já namorava o engenheiro Fernando Abel Mendes Pinheiro, de família rica, bom no vôlei de praia. Fernando morava na Rua General Artigas, no bairro do Leblon, numa bela casa com paredes de pedra. Em maio de 1966, quando os dois se casaram, Tom Jobim e sua mulher Thereza estavam entre os padrinhos.

    Silva Costa
    Instead of having a one-man-show in his city of Rio de Janeiro, Silva Costa decided to have a permanent exposition. This is not a new idea in the Web but a very convenient one. His web page is http://silvacosta.com/ where his biographic data can be seen along with work for sale and also paintings done in the last 45 years (his first one-man-show was held in Monterey, CA, in 1953).

    Daniella Thompson is an American journalist specialized in Brazilian music - one of the best - and her website and blog are great sources of information on the subject.

    She was invited by her friend Eddy Pay, who programs and presents Early Morning Music on Berkeley's KPFA 94.1 FM - the first community supported radio station in the USA, founded in 1949 - to create a program about Ary Barroso, one of the best and best known Brazilian composers. Well, she created two one-hour excellent programs. You may listen to them by clicking on the program names below:

    I hope you'll enjoy the programs as much as I did and I hope Daniella will bring us more programs about Brazilian music. You can listen to other programs she did before by clicking here . I suggest you to visit her website and her blog  for lots of information on Brazilian music.

    thanks to Ismael...

  • The Latin American Microfilm Project (LAMP) at the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) has been funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to digitize executive branch serial documents issued by Brazil's national government during the period between 1821 and 1993, and by its provincial governments from the earliest available for each province to the end of the Empire to 1889. The project provides Internet access to these documents to facilitate their scholarly use and thereby enhances Latin Americanist scholarship within the Hemisphere-wide initiative sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

    The Brazilian documents were scanned from microfilm copies of the originals. The images are stored as GIF and TIFF images in the Center for Research Libraries' Electronic Document Storage and Distribution Facility. The GIF images, at a resolution of 100 dots per inch (d.p.i.), are viewable using web browsers such as Mosaic and Netscape. The TIFF 300 d.p.i. images offer greater clarity, but require a TIFF viewer for use. When GIF images are not legible, click on the "300-d.p.i. TIFF image" found at the top and bottom of the screen. The TIFF image will load automatically in the TIFF viewer you have installed. If the image is illegible in the TIFF format, the reader's only recourse is paper copies. IMPORTANT: Make sure that your video driver is at least at a resolution of 600x800 to allow for the appropriate formatting of the text images.
