It shows how influence for a musical style developed in a peripheral country as Brazil was introduced in a large and central market place as the American (New World Encyclopedia). Bossa nova becomes well-known in worldwide; not only in Brazil and North America. It is because of convenient communication and easier crossing borders among different national people by new technologies (Administrator_v 2006). The transnationalism makes the world be ‘hybridization’ and deterritorialization because places are reproducing and transformation in the appropriate way (Appadurai 1990). In the 21st century, people in the global world tend to appreciate and enjoy the music purely without consciousness of the history and the transnational from the origins of
The millions of African slaves who were taken to modern day South and North America were cut off from their African roots and eventually their culture was diluted and replaced by foreign beliefs. For example, modern-day Brazil was taken over by the Portuguese and the African slaves who were transported to Brazil began to develop a new race with the mulattoes and Natives of the land. Not only did a new race form but also the national language of the country is now Portuguese and their main religion is Christianity. African-Americans or Latin Americans have a lineage, which most probably dates back to an ancestry involved with the African diaspora, which causes racism in the workplace or in everyday life. The Africans who were transported through the trans Atlantic weren’t treated as humans but as goods.
Rio de Janeiro is the capital of Brazil where Samba originated. Samba was firstly evolved in Rio, Brazil and it became a new and unique genre in the early twentieth century. The blacks would come together to form a group and play different kinds of percussive instruments such as surdos, caixas, tamborins, cuica, reco-reco and agogo and dance. There are no proper written notations for Samba music as many devotees say, “It’s something that runs in my veins, it’s in my blood.” This is what makes Samba music unique, as it is clear that Samba music comes purely from the heart and it is a form of expression. Since the liberation in 1888, the immigrants were striving to make living.
For African Americans, jazz music, has always had a political undercurrent. Slave songs spoke of the “Israelites” enslaved by the Egyptians, such as in Go Down Moses, symbolising their own yearning for freedom. However, it took time for the assertion of the political message to develop in a more discernible way. Jazz’s status as a form of entertainment had effectively subdued the message for many years, because of the ostracisation of those involved and because of the early popularity of the white swing bands. The majority of jazz musicians were not political activists, rarely explicitly political in their work, however, they often expressed their political ideals, sometimes more subtley other times more overtly through their music.
Negro spirituals were often called sorrow songs because of the fear of living as slaves. Later, a genre called ragtime was introduced in 1895, with Scott Joplin as the most known musician with this style of music. Next, blues was a way to transverse emotion of those longing for a better life. In the Harlem Renaissance era, jazz came into play. Performers often in clubs like Connies Club, and Smalls Paradise were the entertainment for the whites.
Since the late 1980’s the music industry has seen a development in the phenomena of pop vocal all male groups referred to as ‘boy bands’. These so-called boy bands have proven to be quite the craze for young teenage girls who invest their time creating loyal followings (fan bases) for them by promoting their albums, making signs and waiting in lines for hours just to see them in concert. Each generation has their fair share of successful boy bands. For me, it was *Nsync and for my sister ,it’s One Direction. There hasn’t been a single car journey that passes by without listening to both bands followed by the both of us arguing about which one is better.
This impacted the attitudes toward soccer in Brazil and their players, but pushed the team even harder for the 1958 World Cup. They used the latest scientific knowledge, skill, and talented players to increase their chances of winning. In this match, they promoted the Brazilian style of free-flowing play with proper attacks. Brazilians believe this style was innate in Brazilian players and can be even be seen at the club level with players on Flamengo (Nadel 76-77). Brazil has passionate fans that believe in the national makeup of their players and their inherent abilities.
Among the variety of events that make up the Brazilian carnival, the annual parade of the samba schools are great prominence, mainly because of its uniqueness and spectacular feature. The evolution of samba school somewhat improved the volatility of samba dance. The first samba school is found in 1928, named Mangueira School of Samba. Samba school was originated in the end of 1920 by the organizers of samba dance who were searching for some ways to make the teaching lesson of the dance to be more organized. Ismael Silva, from Estácio then created the term escola de samba which means samba school.

Nowadays Bachata is officially musically recognized music genre not only among the Latino community but worldwide thanks to artists like Prince Royce and Romeo Santos (main singer of the group Aventura) creating a massive movement worldwide. As we move down to the South America, one may come across one of the most influential and beautiful countries of Latin America; Brazil. Brazil is situated in South America and is the homeland to Samba. Another genre of latin music popular worldwide is certainly Samba. Samba is the most typical music from Brazil and even though there are many types of samba, the word “Samba” derives from Angolan term “semba” which is an invitation to dance but despite the word, it could also mean “to pray” as invoking
