Genre Detail


    Music is one of the cornerstones of Brazil; genres like samba are synonymous with Brazilian culture. The music of Brazil encompasses various regional musical styles influenced by African, European and Amerindian forms. The remarkable aspect of Brazilian music is that so many genres are unique to the nation – bossa nova, samba, and sertanejo to name just a few. 

    Be that as it may, there exists a whole lot more than that. Music assumes a significant role in Brazilian life, and Brazil's popular music is as wide as the nation itself and as diverse as its people.


    Some Brazilian musicians have borrowed other genres – rap and pop for instance – and molded them into something distinctly Brazilian.


     Brazilian musicians have developed some unique and original styles such as forró, repente, coco de roda, axé, sertanejo, samba, bossa nova, MPB, música nativista, pagode, tropicália, choro, maracatu, embolada (coco de repente), funk carioca, frevo, brega, modinha and Brazilian versions of foreign musical styles, such as rock, soul, hip-hop, disco music, country music, ambient, industrial and psychedelic music, rap, classical music, fado, and gospel.
