100 years and more to come 


Sobre o Samba

Next year samba as we know it today turns 100 years. It is believed that in 1916 the first samba composition was recorded. It was calledPelotelefone and writtenby Brazilian artist Donga.

Definitely, roots of samba go way beyond these 100 years. But in spite of this samba doesn’t look her age at all – it’s continues to grow and attract more and more fans, not just in Brazil.

Musica boa não fica velha – good music doesn’t age. This is true for samba since even old songs are popular and played in rodas de samba and dance parties.
