Along with the slaves that European colonists brought to Brazil between the 16th and 19th centuries, came the dance and musical traditions of West Africa. The samba, along with many other Brazilian dances, has deep roots in African culture and was once considered a dance only for the lower class. Today, the Samba is now recognized around the world as a symbol of Brazil.
