Samba rock is a genre of samba and subgenre of rock.[1][2]

Created in the 1960s, the genre combines the sounds of Brazilian samba, bebop, jazz and soul. Jorge Ben Jor created the style with his album "Bidu/Silêncio no Brooklin". After this a great number of artists followed Ben's beat, including Clube do Balanço and Trio Mocotó.
