This thesis is dedicated to the understanding of the rural exodus in Brazil, from the analysis of modas de viola recorded by the duo Tião Carreiro and Pardinho throughout their career which corresponds to the decades in which happened the great demographic change that turned Brazil predominantly into an urban nation. The analysis is concentrated on the themes that reveal the encounter the Brazilian country culture with the modernity and the consequent endeavor of building the conciliation between the modernity and tradition, which it is trying to put itself into the new social and economic context incorporating new values and at the same time trying to preserve the essence of the Brazilian country cultural identity. From this effort, calls our attention on the lyrics, will arise, from one side, a meaning of the historical continuity resulting from the analogy between the challenges of the present and the past, on the other hand, an undisputed feeling of waste. Waste of material and immaterial goods that the narratives picture like a big epic movement of one people under formation trying to live in a new kind of society.
