While Brazilian natives Papiba Godinho and Dandha da Hora bring their profound knowledge and respect for the roots of Brazilian song and dance, SambaDá musically unites the Americas drawing from percussion based style of South and Central America samba and salsa, and blends it with a fun Jazz and reggae back beat familiar to crowds of North America. The band is known for its high-energy percussion, danceable grooves and visually dynamic show, and wildly explosive Carnaval-like live performances. SambaDá is dedicated to making people dance by creating an ecstatic non-stop dance party that appeals to all ages and cultures.
