The 1980s in Brazil marks the end of the military dictatorship and the dawn of re-democracy. This presentation will focus on the interplay between the prominent musical movement of the time known as National Rock or Brock and the economic and socio-political complexities of the period. More specifically, we will discuss how the 8o's music serves as a unique window into this historical period reflecting on the youth's hopes, dreams and challenges.
