Samba Novo Floor Show
was the first of it's kind, bringing
the infectious Brazilian "Batucada"
Rhythms, along with an incredible
and colorful dance show, not only
to clubs, but to private events, festivals
and parties as well!
- Samba's syncopated, smooth dance
style was invented in the late 1800s
as part of Brazil's Carnaval celebrations.
Carnaval sambas were typically performed
by large percussion ensembles, and
were an expression of Brazil's West
African heritage. Samba is the basic
underlying rhythm that typifies most
CARNAVAL - Brazil's annual national
Lent celebration, known for it's colorful
parades, wild street parties, and
awesome live performances by large
samba "schools." Similar
to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, though
Carnaval takes place all across Brazil,
and different cities try to top each
other with their insane partying.
BATUCADA - Intense, polyrhythmic percussion.
Batucada is a style which emphasizes
Brazilian culture's African heritage.
