Brazil - Traditions and Daily Life
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Brazilian culture is a clear reflection of its history and the origins of its people - from Portugal, Africa and South American. Brazilian festivals and most notably, its music, have deep roots in the heritage of its people.
 
2     Brazilian music is a very important part of Brazilian life and the country's annual celebrations. Within Brazilian songs, you can hear the influence of Spanish melodies and African rhythms. Among some of the most popular Brazilian musical styles is the Samba, a very lively, rhythmic and dance-oriented musical style. Some of the world's greatest samba musicians are Brazilians.
 
3     Both the music and the dance of samba are taught throughout Brazil at many different "samba schools". Children and adults study year-round the samba dance, then show off their dancing skills at Brazil's many festivals and at dance halls and auditoriums throughout the country. Most of the schools compete in samba dancing competition at the Sambadrome, an 85,000-seat auditorium in Rio de Janeiro. The Sambadrome competition follows a parade of samba schools during Carnival, by far the largest and most popular of Brazil's annual festivals.
