Culture of Brazil

They are extremely passionate about fútbol (soccer) which is the national sport and one of Brazil’s greatest claims to fame.

Soccer or futball is one of the most popular sports in Brazil.

Traditions and culture of Brazil

Experience the country’s most famous cultural event, Carnival, on your luxury Brazil tours – a perfect example of the blending of African pagan festivals with Roman Catholic holidays.

Brazilians often define themselves by region. The fierce rivalry between those from Sao Paulo paulistas, and those from Rio de Janeiro cariocas, is a case in point! Paulistas are considered fast-paced, cosmopolitan, work-obsessed, affluent, big city dwellers, whereas cariocas are more laid-back, beach loving, passionate, happy-go-lucky optimists.

Take one of our luxury Brazil tours to learn more about these rival cities.

The culture of Brazil is also rich in music and dance. Most notable is the samba which is upbeat, rhythmic, and forms the pulsating backdrop of Carnival.

Originating from African drumming, samba encompasses not only a form of music and dance but also a whole tradition and history behind it.

See African influence through the capoeira on your luxury Brazil tours – it is a dance-like martial art created by slaves during colonial times and currently recognized as UNESCO cultural heritage.

There are unique cultures in various regions of Brazil, and you will have the opportunity to see this during your Iguazu Falls touror Amazon River tour.
