Sorrir pra não chorar : Brazilian Samba


A mix of samba, from different eras. Samba's dancing rhythm made Brazilians happier in times of strife and need. Sorrir pra não chorar, smile, so you won't cry. It was used both by the the dictatorship and the protestors, the rich and the poor. Of course, Brazil is more then samba, it is a myriad of styles and genres. But by following samba's evolution, you can see a bit of how the Brazil of yore became the Brazil of today.
