Event Description:
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 Summer edition of the event will feature a dance contest to select Samba New York's 2016 “King of the Drums” —
 O Rei da Bateria. Any male samba dancers who are at least 21 years old and are interested in participating in the contest are invited to register by sending an email to [email protected]  . Space in the contest is limited. The event will also include a samba lesson with Brazilian dance master Danielle Lima, DJ Anderson, and a set of live batucada by the Samba New York! drummers, under the leadership of Director, Philip Galinsky.
