A compilation cassette of Brazilian country music from the 20's to 60's. Comes with DL code.Below is an explanation by the label.

This is the second survey of Brazilian country music, musica caipira (hillbilly music).The collection ranges from early recordings by pioneering folklorist Cornelio Pires in the late 2s to records from the 1920's, 30's, 40's and early 50's.

Caipira music, rooted in the tradition of Portuguese troubadour folk songs, is usually performed by a duo singing the third and sixth in parallel, in the Portuguese-Brazilian style moda de viola (the viola is the Brazilian caipira). It is played with a 3-string guitar of the wind).Originating from the "hinterland" regions of northeastern Brazil, these songs tell stories of pain, love, loss and betrayal, often accompanied by self-made guitars in unique tunings.A departure from the sophisticated pop country and western styles of Sertaneja, these recordings could be considered the Brazilian equivalent of American dustball and Appalachian roots music.

Death Is Not The End:

"The second volume in a survey of a form of Brazilian country music known as música caipira ("hillbilly music") - a stripped-back forerunner to música sertaneja, the Brazilian equivalent to US country & western which in it's contemporary form has come to dominate the domestic music industry in recent decades. This collection covers some of the earliest recordings made by the pioneering folklorist Cornélio Pires at the end of the 1920s, through to records from the 30s, 40s & 50s and the beginning of the 60s.

Somewhat rooted in Portuguese troubadour folk traditions, música caipira is typically performed by a duo singing in parallel thirds and sixths, drawing upon a Portuguese-Brazilian style known as moda de viola - with the viola being the viola caipira, a Brazilian-style ten- string guitar that is the core instrument of the music. Born out of the "outback"-style region in north-eastern Brazil, these songs tell stories of pain, love, loss & betrayal - often backed by homemade guitars using invented tunings. from the polished pop country & western-stylings of the sertaneja, these recordings could be viewed as the Brazilian equivalent to the roots music of the American dustbowl or Appalachia."
