When I hear it I think of Brazil for some reason and I wonder if there is similar Brazilian music.

Brazilian music uses many Afro-Caribbean rhythms, originally from Africa. That would be the only similarity.

I think of Africa.

It doesn't sound like other African music I know (most of which is Nigerian).

Sounds like music from Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde. Must be a West African thing. Music from Angola sounds different. Anyway, there are many different Brazilian music styles and they were certainly influenced by the music of slaves from different parts of Africa.

Cape Verdean music is very different from the Congolese music. Compare that to this:

It would be in previous decades for region Rio de Janeiro. Would be African percussion and Portuguese music.

A funny fact, these african musics tend to be very rich melodically, in Brazil we lack creativity in this area.

It doesn't resemble Brazilian music to me.

And Congo is in Central Africa, not Western Africa contrary to what has been said on this thread.

Cape Verdean music is very different from the Congolese music. Compare that to this:

The examples he used are not representative of each nation. Kuduro is traditionally from Angola but it became a phenomena in other Portuguese speaking African nations. If you want to hear authentic Bissau-Guinean music check for Mandjuandandi. For Cape-Verdean traditional music search for Lura or Cesária Évora.

What Congo are you talking about? Portugueses converted Congo Kingdom to christianity in century XVI, where I live received many people from Congo, maybe I myself have some ancestry from Congo.

Republic of Congo and Democratic Republic of Congo are both in Central Africa. The Kingdom of Congo you're talking about was a vassal state of the Kingdom of Portugal and it was located geographically in both modern Congos, Northern Angola and Gabon so technically if you do have ancestry from there it could be from any of those nations.
