ABSTRACT
The article deals with references to different locations in São Paulo that are identified in sambas produced during the 1950s and 1960s, and makes comparisons to the images of the city translated by these different references. The aim is to demonstrate the usefulness of the study of city’s representations in popular music as a valid and fruitful source for studies of the history of urbanization.
