Hits and Myths: Jazz Goes Global - Brazil

About the Event
Many more slaves were shipped to South America and The West Indies. than to North America. Brazilian estates tended to be far larger than American ones, and supervision of the workforce differed. In Brazil, the African diaspora retained their mental and physical feel for music by creating the Samba. This event will explore the differences from Jazz, and their eventual cross-fertilisation.
