Carnival in Brazil begins this Saturday. Although the traditional holidays in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are not expected until April, due to the increase in COVID-19 cases, Apple is celebrating this holiday by promoting available Apple Music playlists and games. on the App Store.
At present, Apple mainly promotes Apple Music playlists through its Brazil page. One of the lists is called “Around Brazil” (Pelo Brazil), which features the genres forró, sertanejo and pagode baiano. You can listen to this playlist here.
Whether it’s forró, sertanejo or pagoda baiano, regional music flourishes in Brazil, stretching from the countryside to sprawling metropolises, where it merges with powerful urban sounds. These viral party starters mix all of the above with piseiro, brega funk and other local sounds in a pulsating Brazilian cocktail where everything new and exciting goes.
There is no Carnival in Brazil without samba. Whether you love the sound of one of the country’s most iconic genres or have never heard of it, you’ve got everything from traditional to modern songs with this playlist here.
A cold drink, a few friends and the rhythm of Brazil, what more could you ask for? From traditional sounds to modern hybrids (featuring pop, hip-hop and everything in between), this playlist brings together the best new releases from samba and pagoda, studio and ao vivo. We regularly refresh this collection with new music. If you like a track, add it to your library.
Finally, enjoy the happy sound of the street party with Marchinhas Essentials. This is truly samba at its best and will immediately take you back to the good years of Rio de Janeiro’s carnival street parties. Check out the playlist here.
