This thesis aims to analyze the thematic representations present in Brazilian rural music, which began to be produced and transmitted from the 1920s, mapped by the rural way of life, often associated with a rural culture, the backland and the Brazilian guitar. The research developed sought to contextualize the conceptions of this musical style from the historical construction of Brazilian Popular Music, its characteristics and main representatives, then it has made a proper cut of what is Brazilian rural music in the country. In this attempt, based on a perspective of cultural studies, with notes which aimed at examining the identity and memory of the backland person, as well as analyzing the construction of the imagery of the man from the backland and the voice represented in the songs that are established through social and cultural conceptions. Based on theoretical assumptions, such as Andrade (2006, 2015), Bourdieu (1989), Bloch (1995),Caldas (1987), Candido (1977, 2010), Hall (1992, 2003, 2016), Halbwachs (2013), Le Goff (1990, 1992) Mariz (2005), Nepomuceno (1999), Patlagean (1992), Pesavento (2007), Peter Burke (2000, 2010), Ricouer (2007), Romildo Sant’Anna (2000), Tinhorão (2010), Woodward (2000) among others, it is opted for a discursive-literary analysis of Brazilian rural music from the roots and its different thematic approaches and differentiated in a broad and productive universe. Thus, it is intended to trace the identity and cultural formation of rural man, as well as presenting the faces of the backland, from the backland man by the perspective of the countryside and the city, addressing the theme of nostalgia in rural music. Besides these aspects, it will be approached the construction of memory and imaginary of the backland man, pointing out some rural stories that problematize the love and its varied conceptions, as well as misogynistic discursive representations in the analised genre. In this sense, it will be presented songs such as Chico Mineiro (Tonico e Francisco Ribeiro), Franguinho na Panela (Moacyr dos Santos e Paraíso), O doutor e o caipira (Goiano e Geraldinho), Saudade de minha terra (Goiá), Saco de Ouro (Paraíso e José Caetano Erba) and others that will be highlighted the elements described directly in the lyrics of the songs by composers and diversified pairs without a space-time presupposition or clipping, punctuating the transformations and modifications that music, as a form of communication, causes in the sociocultural context and also the aspects of identity, imaginary and memory.
