Samba, the great soundtrack of Rio, plays all across town, though if you're looking for its heart, you'll probably find it in the bohemian neighborhood of Lapa. There addictive rhythms spill out of old-fashioned dance halls, drawing music-lovers from far and wide. Inside you'll find some of Rio's top samba groups, playing to crowds that often pack the dance floor. The nostalgic settings inside the clubs add to the appeal, and even if you don't feel like dancing, the music and festive crowd set the scene for a great night out. In addition to samba, Rio is a showcase for jazz, bossa nova, Música Popular Brasileira (MPB), rock, hip-hop and the fusions among them. Brazil's many regional styles – forró (traditional Brazilian music from the northeast), chorinho (romantic, intimate samba) and pagode (relaxed and rhythmic samba) – are also a part of the music scene.
