Carla Camurati (Rio 2016 Committee) has inspired the development of this timeline, that provides an overview of more than five centuries of Brazilian musical practices. The starting points were the contents gathered since 2009 for Musica Brasilis and research led by FUNARTE. The timeline will be constantly updated to include the highlights of the careers of countless Brazilian musicians, mainly composers.
More than 1500 scores of approximately 500 Brazilian composers are available on http://www.musicabrasilis.org/, to help filling the gap that prevents the diffusion of Brazilian repertoires.
The translation to English and other languages is possible due to a cooperation with UNV – United Nations Volunteers.
