Brazilian music is a vibrant and zealous style evolving from the colourful country of Brazil, where music and dance flows through the landscape and the people. The Brazilian style of music is an eclectic mix of varying influences resulting from the nature of the culture.
With the first mentions of it in the mid-16th century, Brazilian music has evolved over time adding influences from Native American rituals to the introduction of African instruments in the 17th century. The genre encompasses many different genres including Samba, Funk, Bossa Nova and strands of Rap.
