    yes, indeed you are right about the origins of "Roda de Samba", mentioned & recognized by Unesco…the thing is that is only 1 out of different styles of samba…as a urban musical expression, it was developed in the late 19th century, with the "maxixe", the "xote" , ( from Scottish) , the "lundu", and the polka…from this unique mix, was born the singular samba. Other types: samba-canção, Samba de terreiro ,Samba de breque, Samba-de-enredo, Samba-de-balanço to mention a few..

    i tend to believe it ORIGINATED in bahia, hence the unesco designation for samba de roda. it spread with the slaves who went down to rio. there, what we regard as modern/urban samba arose. every artform changes with migrations/immigration but the origin/root remains. bahia is the root of samba. i've never read anything to the contrary therefore, i don't buy your assertion that 99% of historians agree with you. we're not talking about today, we're talking about origins, which is the past.

    Hi there! tks for your comment. As I samba historian, I can pretty much attest you are partially correct: samba has "African" origins, but at the same time, Polka, + numerous other rhythms.( first we have to separate samba as a dance / samba as music/ rhythm. Today there are officially at least 10 different kinds of samba types) Bahia brought parts of the drums beats, but later, several other rhythms were introduced, therefore Rio is considered among 99% by samba historians, as home to samba

    my understanding is that samba (music and dance) originated in bahia. it has african origins. Samba de Roda is considered a unesco world heritage cultural dance. bahians took it to rio where it became the urban samba we know now. that is my understanding – bahia is the true root of samba. which is why i was trying to figure out where to go.

    Definitely Rio, where samba and carnival was born. Bahia has "micareta" a "pop" version, but definitely not "grass roots".

    should a first timer go to carnival in rio or bahia?

    @propheci Hello my YT friend…When you come to Brazil i wil give you a "frequent mileage status" as gratitude for always watching our videos…LOL…. back to your questions, she is in fact sister of Vagner Love, ( who is himself a great samba lover and plays samba drums too! ) But many people indeed make this confusion…I myself ( about 4 years ago, ) had the same doubt.. Cheers!
