Music Cultures: Samba in Salvador

Musical practices, aesthetics and skills that can be observed in Brazil’s music and dance came with the slaves who were taken from their homes in Africa during the Atlantic slave trade. Samba is one form of music celebrated in Brazil with deep cultural roots in Africa.

During their recent visit to Salvador, Brazil, Fall 2014 students had the opportunity to attend Senzala do Barro Preto, a samba school situated within a favela. Watch this short video and see what students learned and experienced after practicing samba themselves.
