Music in Sao Paulo



Popular Places

  • Avenida Paulista
  • São Paulo's musical range, from soothing sounds to seemingly cacophonous noise, is unmatched in Latin America. Brazil boasts a vast hodgepodge of genres, with samba rock, axe and tropicalismo just some of the national creations, and São Paulo is the country's melting pot. Megastars on the domestic and international tour circuits-Ivete Sangalo, Paul McCartney, U2 and Amy Winehouse to name a few-regularly schedule multiday live shows in São Paulo's soccer stadiums, open-air plazas and other sprawling show venues. The smaller sites-bossa nova bars, country music saloons and samba houses-meanwhile teem with tunes and twirling bodies.

    In other words, there is something for everyone here. The world-renowned train station-turned-concert hall Sala São Paulo is home to the São Paulo State Symphonic Orchestra. Rock cover bands play international favorites at the Kiwi-themed Kia Ora Pub. Revelers can select from three DJs coming in over wireless headphone sets at Sonique Bar's Nokia Silent Club parties, or choose to sing their own specialties at from the thousands of selections at karaoke restaurant Choperia Liberdade. If electronic music is your pleasure, the nightclub scene-from downtown Barra Funda neighborhood (Clash Club) to the revitalized Rua Augusta (Mokai) to the beaches of Maresias (Sirena)-serves up visiting DJs from around the globe almost every night of everyday of the year. The locales in Vila Olimpia and Vila Madalena, on the other hand, continue to dish out dance parties from pagode to hip-hop.

    So take a break from the sights and take your ears on excursion! São Paulo abounds with places to do just that, and here are the top ten.
