Show Summary Details


One of the most significant developments in terms of communication since the 1990s involves the Internet's dissemination and diversification. The spread and exchange of information over the World Wide Web has moved towards global digital networks' macro level, local online communities' micro level, and virtual connection's intermediate level within geographical areas. Transamerican arts' relations may adopt a multidirectional spread as it may encompass all of the Western Hemisphere's countries. This chapter introduces Banda Hispânica—an Internet location that utilizes technological means to represent cultural inclusions— and how Brazil occupies a substantial area in cyberspace because of its international and national poetry postings. The most wide-ranging Brazilian lyric Website sponsors a “Hispanic band” which is further divided in sections that are always found to be in progress.
