Social and Cultural Traits in Brazil

Social The culture of Brazil has been shaped by historical factors, from aboriginal Amerindian traditions to colonisation by the Portuguese and the subsequent importation of African traditions as part of the slave trade. As a result, Brazil has a diverse cultural background which is best demonstrated during the annual Carnaval period. Carnaval occurs just before Lent and is a six-day party, featuring a range of Brazilian musical styles, traditional dancing, and elaborate costumes.
