A must-do in Rio is going out for at least one evening of live Brazilian music. Set in a 19th century former mansion in the bohemian neighborhood of Gamboa is Trapiche Gamboa. On Thursday nights, the female singers and accompanying percussionists from Razões Africanas (African Roots) present their traditional musics of jongo, samba, maracatu and ijexá there. It is a unique musical experience connected to Rio’s rich African heritage.
