From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Samba is a Brazilian dance and musical genre originating in African and European roots. The word is derived from the Portugese verb sambar, meaning “to dance to rhythm.” It is a worldwide recognized symbol of Brazil and the Carnival and is the national dance of Brazil. Considered one of the most popular Brazilian cultural expressions, the samba has become an icon of Brazilian national identity. The Bahian samba de roda (dance circle), which became a UNESCO Heritage of Humanity in 2005, was a basis of the samba carioca, the samba that is played and danced in Rio de Janeiro.
