Pure, organic, dance music – powerful and irresistible. SambaYaBamba is a musical tour-de-force hailing from the sundrenched streets of tropical Glasgow. A 30-odd-piece drumming bateria and brass section rooted in the musical traditions of the Brazilian carnaval yet at the same time, very much tailored to a the Glasgow crowd. They are equally at home on a huge stage, in a street parade or in a basement club. Their set twists and turns from full scale samba to drum and bass and beyond with a tightness and commitment to the rhythm that is a joy to behold. Local legends and loved across the samba scene.
The street band party doesn’t end there! Juba Do Leão will be bringing even more Brazilian sounds to the evening.
Juba do Leão are an Oldham (UK) based percussion and dance collective who shine a light into the enticing bottomless depths of Brazilian folkloric music and dance, whilst reaching into the contemporary treasure chest of uplifting modern Western styles. Inspired by the floor-shaking rhythms and vibrant dances of North-eastern Brazil, Juba do Leão take you on an enlightening tour of the intoxicating grooves of Brazil and beyond.
Saddle up for an evening of big beats and funky fusions.
