Sol Samba

Sol Samba

Carnival and Oxford superstars, Sol Samba is a Brazilian percussion and dance group formed in 1999.

Sol Samba are always right at the heart of the Cowley Road Carnival, and spectacular to watch in the procession. This  year they will be performing virtually with their infectious authentic Brazilian carnival music and dance

Their current repertoire focuses on the laid back grooves of samba reggae that hail from Salvador. In the past, we have also played Rio samba, maracatu, afoxê, afro-samba, samba duro, batucada and baião.
