A unique musical culture has developed in Brazil, including genres like choro, samba and bossa nova, through the fusion of indigenous culture with the cultures of many immigrants to Brazil. Modern Brazilian music has fans all over the world, who love its incredible ingenuity and musicianship.

Beginning with the Brazilian Carnival 1979, Min-On has been a part of over 30 cultural exchange events with Brazil, hosting artists like former Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil and Gal Costa. Our journey today features music by Sururu na Roda, Ordinarius as well as Hamilton de Holanda, a musician recommended by the Embassy of Brazil to Japan.

We hope you enjoy Brazil, and thank you!
