The Roots of Brazilian Music series focuses on lesser-heard, acoustic Brazilian sounds: the instrumental virtuosity of Choro, sometimes refered to as a "brazilian ragtime", but featuring improvisation, like jazz. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3MScY99wco , the infectious pulse and joyful/plaintive/humorous lyrics of traditional small-group samba, that, like jazz, has roots in African music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3g8-hvmjjOY
