Samba-rock is a genre of samba and subgenre of rock.[1][unreliable source?] 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 Banda Black Rio and Trio Mocoto.
