Definitions :

SAMBA - Samba's syncopated, smooth dance style was invented in the late 1800s as part of Brazil's Carnaval celebrations. Carnaval sambas were typically performed by large percussion ensembles, and were an expression of Brazil's West African heritage. Samba is the basic underlying rhythm that typifies most Brazilian music.

CARNAVAL - Brazil's annual national Lent celebration, known for it's colorful parades, wild street parties, and awesome live performances by large samba "schools." Similar to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, though Carnaval takes place all across Brazil, and different cities try to top each other with their insane partying.

BATUCADA - Intense, polyrhythmic percussion. Batucada is a style which emphasizes Brazilian culture's African heritage.
