From its syncretic and culturally mixed origins, faithful portrayal of our own people, to the international reputation that makes it one of the most admired and played in the world, Brazilian music has always been rich of genres and influences.
However, even though it has a common base of rhythm, it is not an easy task to know the enormous plurality of sounds existing in Brazil.
After all, in Brazil, more than 150 rhythms have been identified and cataloged by scholars, from the best known as frevo, maracatu and baião, to dozens of others less known, but not less important.
Melodies, harmonies and rhythms are deeply present in the collective imagery of distinct groups, making taste and affection for certain musical universes find their place in the dictionary of affective expression through music, even if this collective imagery belongs to groups that live far from the source of the musical style in question.
Brazilian Popular Music found its place in many cultures throughout the planet. The interest of these cultures in relation to MPB (Brazilian Popular Music), opens the way for Brazilian musicians, making this artistic language become a passport to the world.
