The choro developed in Rio de Janeiro in the late nineteenth century out of a blend of Portuguese fado and European salon music. As an instrumental form, choro evolved into a type of dixieland / jazz musical style and experienced a revival in the 1960’s.
Brazilian popular music really began with the samba in the late 19th century. Choro was the forerunner to samba and by 1928, ‘samba schools’ were founded to provide training in the samba, not the least for Carnaval. By the 1930s, radio was available to most people, and the popularity of samba spread throughout the country. Various forms of popular music since that time have all been influenced by samba, including Brazil’s earlier traditional song and dance forms./.
