MaSamba are passionate about Brazilian culture and have worked hard to become one of the best samba groups in Ireland. Their performing group specializes in both indoor shows and parades and has appeared at most of the most important events and venues in Ireland. They have also traveled to play in Liverpool and Cardiff and have toured Mexico and, of course, Brasil. MaSamba plays roughly 90 performances a year, mainly in Ireland.
With a drum core of over 20 experienced drummers, a dance section featuring the best Brasilian dancers in Ireland, and a huge stock of authentic, high quality carnival costumes, produced for the group in Brasil, MaSamba have the capacity to perform at everything from an intimate soirée to a full-on carnival parade.
They play a mixture of traditional and modern rhythms, including samba, samba-reggae, timbalada, funk, maracatu, ijexá, coco, hip-hop, samba-rock, and many other experimental mixes, with even the odd bit of Irish traditional music thrown in for good measure!
Enjoy a little bit of festival atmosphere with Masamba on Saturday 23rd of September at Dublin Vegfest.
