Description: River of Tears is the first ethnography of Brazilian country music, one of the most popular genres in Brazil and least-known outside it. Beginning in the mid-1980s, various forms of rural music burst onto Brazils national music scene. Commercial musical duos practicing msica sertaneja reached beyond their base in Brazils Central-Southern region to become national bestsellers. Rodeo events revolving around country music came to rival soccer matches in attendance. A revival of folkloric rural music called msica caipira, heralded as msica sertanejas ancestor, took shape, particularly in the Central-Southern state of So Paulo. All the while, large numbers of Brazilians in the Central-South were moving to cities, claiming as they did so that their Brazil was first and foremost a rural nation.
