SAMBADA

While Brazilian natives Papiba Godinho and Dandha da Hora bring their profound knowledge and respect for the roots of Afro-Brazilian song and dance, the entire band has developed a type of samba-reggae-funk with a universal appeal. SambaDá musically unites the Americas, drawing from percussion-based styles of South and Central America, and blends it with that good old funk and reggae back beat so familiar to crowds of North America.
