Brazil Brazil

Fundación MAPFRE has been collaborating on projects in Brazil for several years, now with a total of 23 nation-wide projects. Brazil is the largest country of South America with an area of nearly half that of the continent. Its economy is the most thriving of the region. Brazilian society is diverse, as it is made up of descendants of Europeans, Indigenous peoples, Americans, Africans and Asians. This mix makes it one of the most culturally rich countries, by way of a richness expressed fundamentally in its music.
