Arts & Entertainment Directory

The colorful aspects of the majestic Brazilian arts and culture would remain incomplete without acknowledging its myriad vicissitudes. The pulsating beat of the Samba dance and the turquoise blue sea beaches offers breathtaking views of natural sights and a glimpse into this vibrant country. The Portuguese who invaded the country long back and established their supremacy over the land are the main reason to which the Brazilian culture owes its origin. The Roman Catholic faith initiated by the Portuguese were imbibed by the common general masses of Brazil, which still continues to exert dominant influence over the Brazilian population. Along with the passage of time Brazil's language, music, cuisine and religion got moulded into the trends of Dutch, French, Italians, Germans, Spanish, Japanese and Nigerians as well. Towards the last half of 20th century, the cultural scenario of Brazil underwent a significant change with the intermingling of various foreign cultures especially in the field of cinema and modern art. The most widely attended of Brazilian festivals and certainly the most widely recognized international event is Carnival, the annual celebration. Carnival is a musical perspective focusing on the gradual union of Carnival and samba, the traditional dance form of Brazil.
