Emas National Park Picture: Emas National Park, State of Goiás, from the excellent website of Embratur, the official Brazilian tourist ministry.
Villa Lobos visited the state of Goiás in 1910.
In 1925, when he had completed the Choros No. 3 for male chorus & wind instruments, he dedicated the work 
 
    "...to the sonorous atmospher of the primitive music of the aborigines of the states of Matto Grosso and Goias." 
Check out Sergio Koreisha's page on Goiânia and Goiás, on his very highly recommended Meu Brasil website.
And for more information, try the excellent website Conheca Goiás.
