Le goût de ces choses bien à nous : la valorisation de la samba comme emblème national (Brésil, années 1920-1940)

Abstract : Based on the study of Brazilian radio broadcasting and its environment, this paper analyzes the processes that led samba, from being the symbol of the discrimination of mixed-blood populations, to become a national symbol. The paper first describes the cultural prescriptions which, until the 1930s, have disqualified samba. It then looks at the economic role of the carnival in consolidating an “industrial” economic rationality around the samba phenomenon. Finally, it analyzes the trajectories of four radio professionals of the period 1920-1940, in order to outline the strategies used by commercial broadcasting stations to legitimize musical programs dominated by samba, as well as the processes that have valorized samba as a legacy and an esthetic “genre.”
