     Until November 10th Casa Porto in Gamboa, will exhibit "Samba Our Identity,” by photographer Ierê Ferreira.

    Samba is arguably the principle musical genre in Brazil, and responsible for much of its cultural identity. Born from the influence of African rhythms, it has undergone numerous modifications for the various contingencies - economic, social, cultural and music - to reach the pace that we now know it to be.

    From the first dance, to years later turning into a unique musical composition, "samba" - formerly called "Semba" - was also called umbigada, drumming, dance wheel, Lundu, gherkin and loud party, among others names, many of them coexisting simultaneously.

   The exhibition displays an array of images that explore how samba beats prejudices everyday with the strength of its dancers; breaking down the barriers that separate social classes and races.
Thus, becoming noble for its excellence.
