UO Latin American Studies program presents Guest Speaker Prof. Christopher Dunn

“Maluco Beleza: Music of the Brazilian Counterculture”

This presentation will explore the popular music associated with the Brazilian counterculture of the early 1970s during the most repressive phase of military rule. In the wake of the Tropicália movement of 1968, a broad range of artists, including Gal Costa, Jards Macalé, Luiz Melodia, Raul Seixas, and the Novos Baianos created music that spoke to the despair and desire of a generation of urban youth. As the revolutionary energies of the sixties subsided, artists explored notions of personal liberation associated with the so-called desbunde, a distinctly Brazilian experience with the international youth counterculture.
