Brazil

Brazil is mostly known for samba and bossa nova, but the musical heritage of the world’s fifth largest country is much more varied than that. Sami travels to a lesser-known area of the country in the north. He visits Recife, where the myriad musical influences meet the traditions of the past and the attitudes of the future.
