Samba New York's "Queen of the Drums" Samba Party

As opposed to a show, the "Samba Party" is more of a communal gathering, where Brazilian music enthusiasts share their love of samba drumming, dance, and culture—a kind of NYC take on the mega samba school rehearsals that precede Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. This Springtime edition of the event will feature an official dance contest to select the 2015 "Queen of the Drums"—A Rainha da Bateria—who will get to march in front of Samba New York's Drum Section at this year's Dance Parade on Saturday, May 16th and Village Halloween Parade on Saturday, October 31st. Any female samba dancers who are interested in participating in the contest are invited to register by emailing their full name, contact phone number, and a photo in samba costume to [email protected]
The event will also include a samba lesson with Brazilian dance master Danielle Lima and a set of exhilarating batucada with the drummers from Samba New York! under the leadership of Director, Philip Galinsky. For further details, please visit:

Praised by Brazil’s Estado de São Paulo newspaper as “the most famous and active ‘school of samba’ in New York City,” Samba New York! has brought the richness and exhilaration of Rio’s samba traditions to some of the most prestigious venues, events, and media platforms in NYC and beyond—including Central Park SummerStage, the WITNESS Gala hosted by Peter Gabriel, ESPN’s 2014 Upfront at the Minskoff Theatre, TV Globo’s O Jornal Nacional, the Today Show, and Dr. Oz Show. Having grown up immersed in Rio’s samba world, Danielle Lima is one of NYC’s foremost Brazilian dancers and teachers and founder of the Brasileirando Dance Group.
