Brazilian popular music has always intersected with the production of citizenship. From the emergence of samba in the early 20th century, music has been an integral part of how Brazilians of all classes and races have coded their relationship with politics.

This presentation will review the past 40 years of the relationship between music and citizenship in Brazil.
