Strong influences on the music of Brazil come from many parts of

the world, but there are very popular regional music styles

influenced by African and European forms. After 500 years of

history the Brazilian music developed some unique and original

styles like choro, forró, frevo, samba (in a lot of styles), bossa

Nova, MPB, Brazilian rock and others. Samba is no doubt the best

known form of Brazilian music worldwide, though bossa nova and

other genres have also received much attention abroad. All genres

of Brazilian music formed a solid tradition.
