Origin of Sertanejo
Sertanejo is a musical genre from the early 1900s that emerged in Brazil. It is a very popular musical style in Brazil, especially in the South East and Center West regions.
The origin of the word sertanejo (from Sertão) comes from the geographic area of Sertão in northeastern Brazil. This name means “deep end”, justifying the place of origin of this musical style.

The Latino rhythms of these very popular music in Brazil can be joyful, melancholy, dynamic or peaceful but make you want to dance. Often accompanied by a small accordion melody, always played acoustically with percussion and of course the guitar … for the American country “look”. Sertanejo singers sometimes cultivate a cowboy look, which does not match the image one has of Brazilian music outside of Brazil. And yet, sertanejo is the most popular South American musical genre today.
