A modinha is a kind of sentimental love song. The modinha is of uncertain origin, but it may have evolved in either Brazil or Portugal. In 1739, Domingos Caldas Barbosa wrote a series of modinhas that were extremely popular, especially in salons. The modinha of the late 19th century was sung in the streets or as an outdoor serenade, usually accompanied by flute, guitar, and cavaquinho.
