A three-part series from BBC

“The series offers a detailed account of the years in which Brazilian music has evolved and constantly changed, while capturing the global imagination.

Filmed at Brazil’s massive carnival celebrations, in the lawless favelas, the extraordinary maracatu ceremonies of the northern countryside, and in the music clubs of Salvador and Rio, these three, hour-long films chronicle Brazilian music from the birth of samba right through to the hip-hop, baile and funk scenes.”
