-------------BRAZILIAN TEN-STRING GUITAR-----------------

The Brazilian ten-string guitar (“viola caipira”), an instrument of Portuguese origin, is a descendent of the guitarra latina, a highly popular Arabic-Persian instrument in the 15th and 16th centuries.
The brazilian ten-string guitar, or the viola, arrived in Brazil around 1550 with the Jesuits and was first used to help convert the native population. It was gradually given various names (wire guitar, North-eastern guitar, Brazilian guitar) as well as various tunings, tones, and design features.
For a long time violas were used by Brazilians in the backlands to play country and religious music.
In the 19th century, backland Brazilians began migrating to the cities in search of a better life, and brought with them their customs, traditions, and music. In this context the ten-string guitar expanded into new musical horizons, influencing and also being influenced by urban life.
