What is Samba? Samba is one of the most popular forms of music in Brazil. It is widely viewed as Brazil’s national musical style. Samba developed as a distinctive kind of music at the beginning of the 20th century. It began in Rio de Janeiro as a result of the strong influence from immigrant black people from the Brazilian state of Bahia. The rhythm comes from the Brazilian slave owners who allowed their slaves to continue their heritage of playing drums (unlike U.S. slave owners who feared use of the drum for communications).
