'Bossa Mundo' chronicles how Brazilian music has been central to Brazil's national brand in the United States and the United Kingdom since the late 1950s. Scholarly texts on Brazilian popular music generally focus on questions of music and national identity, and when they discuss the music's international popularity, they keep the artists, recordings, and live performances as the focus, ignoring the process of transnational mediation. This text fills a major gap in Brazilian music studies by analyzing the consequences of moments when Brazilian music was popular in Anglophone markets, with a focus on the media industries.
