This chapter begins with an overview of Brazilian art music. It then discusses how African-derived thematic material has been used in the genre since the late 1800s; Ganguzama, the first symphonic work that incorporated the berimbau; percussionist and composer Luiz D’Anunciação’s development of berimbau notation and the emergence of percussion-based art music in Brazil; and a contemporary vanguarda composition for berimbau and prerecorded tape by Luiz Augusto (Tim) Rescala.
