Although Brazil is the fifth biggest nation on the planet, with a total landmass bigger than the United States, a lot of people are just acquainted with two of its musical structures: Samba and bossa nova. Be that as it may, there exists a whole lot more than that. Music assumes a significant role in Brazilian life, and Brazil's pop music is as wide as the nation itself and as diverse as its people.
Lundu and Maxixe
The slaves first introduced the lundu music, it became the first "black" music that was ever accepted by the European aristocracy in Brazil. Initially, the music was considered an erotic, indecent dance; it changed to a solo song (lundu-canção) in the 18th century.
The choro created in Rio de Janeiro in the late nineteenth century out of a mix of Portuguese fado and European salon music. As an instrumental structure, choro developed into a kind of Dixieland/jazz musical style and encountered a recovery during the 1960s.

Brazilian pop music started with the Samba in the late nineteenth century. Choro was the trailblazer to Samba, and by 1928, 'Samba schools' were established to give training in the Samba, not the least for Carnaval. By the 1930s, radio was accessible to the vast majority, and the popularity of Samba spread all through the nation. Different types of popular music since that time have all been impacted by the Samba, including Brazil's earlier traditional song and dance forms
Baiao and Forro
The music of Brazil's northern coast (Bahia) is moderately known outside of Brazil. Given the nearness of Cuba and the Caribbean islands, the Baiao music is nearer to the Cuban Trova as compared to other Brazillian pop genres.
