Brazil's music is a rich and diverse cultural heritage. The subcontinent includes a myriad of styles far too numerous to mention here, a treasure trove of musical gems. At Red & Black Music, Brazilian music has always been very close to the heart. In recognition of this, we offer Brazilian setups across 3 out of our 4 projects.
