Samba: Resistance in Motion,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samba: Resistance in Motion (Arts and Politics of the Everyday) (Paperback)
This is a fascinating look at movement in Brazil and the relationships between different types and styles of movement. This is a good place to start an exploration of this subject. It is a subjective account, although the historical information seems to be adequately researched. The value is more in the vivid snapshot the author creates of a period in the development of music and movement in the country, rather than as a comprehensive historical depiction. The author sometimes moves back and forth in ways that may seem unrelated until later in the book, so readers should be patient.
