International observers experiencing the Swedish culture for the first time usually become a bit surprised by the richness and diversity of our cultural heritage. We, Swedes, are never satisfied in playing the role of mere supporting actors, anonymous and isolated in northern Europe. We have always been quick to travel and capture impressions and knowledge from external sources, and also disseminate technological advances accomplished by our countrymen.
Therefore, it is not a surprise that Swedish researchers have been working to implement investigations and to carry out collaborative work with their Brazilian colleagues. Some Swedish foundations dedicated to supporting research, teaching, and also the training of our professionals, like STINT – Stiftelsen for Internationalisering av Högre Utbildning och Forskning and Linnaeus-Palme Programmet, Universitets- och högskolerådet, have invested and encouraged several partnerships with Brazil.
The reader might enjoy the result of these actions of international cooperation in this book organized by the Brazilian musician and researcher Antenor Ferreira Correa. This collection depicts the result of a collaborative work initiated in 2011 between researchers and professors from Örebro Universitet and Universidade de Brasilia. Music in an Intercultural Perspective is a unique work, with deep scientific, philosophical, artistic, and human content.
From the Swedish point of view, this is a moment when the already excellent relations between Brazil and Sweden are further strengthened. It is a great pleasure to preface this book as a way of expressing our long-standing relationship. I hope the texts here presented provoke the readers to reflect on the extraordinary adventure of bringing Swedish researchers from the snowing Scandinavia to build partnerships in the Brazilian tropics.
