Originally written for piano, these early works were transcribed, as Danses Africaines = Danças Africanas, for orchestra.

The score of Danças Caracteristicas Africanas is available at the IMSLP/Petrucci Music Library. You can hear Flavio Varani play this work at Mbaraka.

There is also an unpublished version for chamber ensemble - fl, cl(Bb), pf, 2vl, vla, vlc e cb - which I don't believe has been performed since the 1920s. 

Instrumentation: 

Solo piano

Scores: 

Villa-Lobos, Heitor. 1920. Dansas características africanas. Rio de Janeiro: A. Napoleão. You can download the score from IMSLP.org.
