whilst tropicalia had given brazil’s musicians and songwriters a political voice during the 60’s, the black rio movement had to battle the odds: black soul was perceived as not being authentically brazilian and the country was under the rule of general medici’s oppressive dictatorship, which effectively suffocated cultural expression between 1969 and 1974.the story of black rio is an exceptional one founded in the passion of soul and funk aficionados, a story that takes us across the america’s linking harlem to rio. it is the story of a music movement that influenced a generation of disenchanted black and poor brazilian youth, mirroring the struggles of their counterparts in north america.the military censorship forbided images of mixed-race couples being shown on television, let alone the outright promotion of black culture. black rio was an important step forward in the reevaluation of black culture in brazil and opened the way for subsequent black music movements, such as the rap music scene that has sprung up in the suburbs of major brazilian cities.what started out as a simple expression of the universal power of black music became a symbol for brazilians to leave the ghetto and choose their own destiny, music and fashion.
