Originally developed in Brazil in Rio de Janiero with roots in Africa and the West African slave trade, the Samba is recognized around the world as the official dance of Brazil's Carnival. There are Samba Schools in Brazil that have as many as 5, 000 students. The different schools compete in the annual Carnival in a spectacle spectacular!

Modern Samba emerged at the beginning of the 20th century and is composed of a 2/4 rhythm with about 100 beats per minute. Often you will hear the instruments of string, tamborine, trombone, trumpet, flute and clarinet making this fun dance with the strong down beat. To read more about the Samba click here!
