ResumoThe Revista Brasileira de Música (Brazilian Journal of Music) is pleased to present this issue with the main theme “Popular music: history, ethnography and sociology”, which continues a realm of research, previously presented in the issue “Music in urban spaces”, by furthering some approaches that have engaged musicology recently. The articles in this issue discuss the urban popular music in Brazil, and some of its representative movements of the 20th and 21st centuries. It also presents new research on Brazilian art music of the early 20th century dealing with the composer Homero de Sá Barreto’s life, compositional output, and reception, hitherto scarcely researched.
