The area
Neighbourhood: Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.

Are you looking for a cool Brazilian music on vinyl, at Rio? Go to Tropicália Discos !
Feb 2017 • Business
At Tropicália Discos you can find hundreds of LPs from diverse genres of Brazilian music, which contemplate our cultural diversity - from samba & bossa nova to jazz, from MPB to sambalanço, from Brazilian rock/ psychedelia to baião, coco, xote and so on. The owners are very receptive, solicitous (they do not have that bad mood typical of a record store) and you can listen to as many records as you want. Prices vary widely - from easy-to-find discs to rarities of Brazilian music that could cost hundreds of dollars. If you are hang out in Rio de Janeiro and you want to know Brazilian music in another way and better, go to this place right now!

Treasure Hunting for Records.

A small shop but packed to the rafters with vinyl. Lots of MPB and Tropicalia along with psych, modern rock and other odds and ends. Not really much in the way of Bossa Nova if that's what you're looking for. The guys there are super chill and helpful. Prices are totally fair- you won't get tons of bargains but you won't be ripped off either. Could spend a lot of time in here.
