Samba is a genuine cultural phenomenon with very deep roots, so popular that it is still prized in Brazil and gets people dancing the world over. One of its oldest forms, Samba de Roda, emerged from the Yoruba’s orisha beliefs and the ancestral traditions of the Kingdom of Kongo, which included present-day Angola.

Since 2019, Samba Canjerê, an ensemble full of authenticity and warmth with a repertoire composed of traditional songs, classics and original music, has been showcasing this Afro-Brazilian heritage, a rhythmical treasure and epitome of joie de vivre, in which percussion reigns supreme.
