Richard Klein was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1962 – two years before the military coup but the same year that the Rolling Stones and the Beatles recorded their first singles and the same year that Brazil would win its second FIFA world cup. Richard’s BritishJewish parents, who had moved to a booming Rio de Janeiro in the wake of World War II, and who would soon prosper. They would never, however, fully adapt to their new land, – and certainly not to either football or rock n’ roll. Richard, nonetheless, would grow up to love both. In fact, this is the heart of the story: the author’s journey of discovery of the land of his birth, as well as adventuring into the brave new world of rock culture in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, all under the sinister shadow of the military dictatorship that ruled Brazil at this time.
Lost Samba is part memoir, part document of the birth of the new Brazil – a fascinating firstperson account of a dark, but exciting, period for the country. Richard tells of the bittersweet path taken by his generation. He shows, first hand, the enjoyment by the urban élite of the privileges secured for them by the military rule, then the crawling from under the claws of that regime and, ultimately, the unfolding of one of the worst economic disasters in Brazilian history.
This book peers through the many clichés about Brazil, and surprises the reader with anecdotes, adventures, reflections and facts, while managing to be a useful resource for those wishing to understand this huge country.
This is the fully revised, second edition, of Lost Samba. The book has also been redesigned and now has illustrations while the ebook now contains a plethora of links to help give the reader a comprehensive experience
Although the book Lost Samba takes the form of a memoir – growing up in the rapidly changing Brazil of the 1960s to 1980s, it offers powerful historical and political insights into the recent history of the ‘sleeping giant’....
