At Brazilian Studies we learn everything there is to know about Brazil, because it is important to us. What we also do is listening to different kinds of genres in Brazilian music, because it is as important to know about the music as it is to know about pronoun in grammar.

We have our own YouTube account and when we have some videos to upload they will appear at the account:

Moving over to the genre of Brazilian Music called Forrô, we find much music, and some is different than other. Forrô is a musical genre that has several ideas about the origin of the name forrô. Forrô comes from the word forrobodó, which means great party or commotion. It also is believed to derive from the English expression "for all" - when the railroad was build the workers threw parties some nights: some were for the workers alone, and some of them were for all. Nonetheless, forrô is a Northeastern and Southeastern Brazilian genre, and many dances are connected to the music.
