Brazil has an ancient history, one that is complex and intricate. Unique and original styles (such as samba and bossa nova, sertanejo, troicalia and choro, maracatu, embolada and mangue beat, frevo, axé andlambada). The first registration of musical activity in Brazil comes from the activities of two Jesuit priests in 1549. The native peoples of the Brazilian rainforest play instruments including whistles, flutes, horns, drums and rattles. After 500 years of history, Brazilian music developed some unique and original styles. As different people set up home throughout Brazil, each brought with them and developed their own unique style of song and music.
With time, these different styles have evolved somewhat. In the 18th century, there was intense musical activity in all the more developed regions of Brazil, but the crucial factor for the changes in the musical life, was the arrival of the Portuguese Royal family in 1808. Instrumental music is also largely practiced in Brazil, with styles ranging from classical to popular and jazz influenced forms. Nowadays, Brazilian music follows the guidelines of both experimentalism and traditional music. The origins of the “choro”, are in 19th century Rio de Janeiro. Originally choro was played by a trio of flute, guitar and a small chordophone with four strings, named “cavaquinho”.
