Abstract: This paper seeks to discuss sound archives as tools for the comprehension of colonial, racial and ethnic alterities and representations. Through a brief case study focused on Geraldo Magalhães - the first black Brazilian singer to achieve commercial success in Europe, in the beginning of the 20th century – I try to understand how a series of sound strategies were used to enable the insertion of black musicians in the context of phonographic industries. I argue that this process was related to the creation of stereotypes linked to black singers and musicians, where elements such as ethnicity, comedy, sensuality and alterity played a central role in the dynamics of incorporation of these musicians in the entertainment system provided by the phonographic industries in this period.
