Description

Chicago Samba offers the authentic sounds of Brazil mixed with the flavor of carnaval. They play a unique mix of Brazilian popular song styles, including:

  • Samba, the energetic national rhythm of Brazil
  • Bossa Nova, a laid-back, seductive sound that merges jazzy melodies with the essence of the samba

beat (popularized by Antonio Carlos Jobim and songs like “The Girl from Ipanema”)

  • Brazilian Jazz, under the influence of American Jazz, this the newest style of world music.
  • Olodum, an rhythm-heavy, Afro-Brazilian sound tinged with reggae (popularized by Olodum)
  • Forro, a lively syncopated sound from the rural northeastern Brazil
  • Chorinho, a richly melodic sound driven by string instruments like guitar, flute & cavaquinho.
  • Pagode, a funky Rio “party music” sound
  • Batucada, an exciting, all-percussive jam session that brings any audience to its feet to dance along with the group – just like carnivale in Rio de Janeiro.
