  • Live music and Rio de Janeiro go together like beaches and bikinis, and music-loving visitors are sure to be impressed by the quality of Rio live music.

    The locals are a musical lot, often breaking into song and dance at the slightest opportunity, and should you be in Rio during the run up to carnival you won't be able to escape the driving samba beat.
    Our number one pick, Semente, occupies a corner position at the heart of Lapa, and revellers gather outside on Sunday nights to enjoy the music without paying the entrance fee.

    But it's not all about samba. You can hear bossa nova at Bar do Tom, jazz at the Maze, or hard rock at Praca das Bandeiras.

    For quality live music in a relaxed, intimate setting, make a beeline for Bip Bip, in Copacabana, which has been known to attract famous name Brazilian artists to its regular jam sessions.
