The culture of Brazil

The culture of Brazil is rooted in the culture of Portugal. The Portuguese colonists and immigrants brought the Catholic faith, the Portuguese language and many traditions and customs that still influence the modern-day Brazilian culture. As a multiracial country, its culture also absorbed other influences. The Amerindian peoples influenced Brazil's language and cuisine and the Africans, brought as slaves, largely influenced Brazil's music, dance, cuisine and language. Italian and German immigrants came in large numbers and their influences are felt closer to the South of Brazil. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazil#Culture [Aug 2006]
