  • 2. I am studying Brazils dances and music.• Brazil is located in South America. Brazil was the only country in America that was not taken over by England or Spain. Brazil was taken by Portugal. When they won their independence they kept the Portuguese language. Music and dances are really important for Brazilians, because they use them for carnivals. Carnivals are the most important celebration in Brazil.
