In this Feb. 3, 2012 photo, women dance during a funk "baile" in the Cantagalo slum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Huge funk “bailes,” or parties, go on past dawn, packed with shirtless young men who can be heavily armed drug dealers, in slums far from police control. Subgenres can glorify the lifestyle of drug dealers, much like Mexico's narco-corridos, or simply serve as a titillating escape from the workaday grind. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
