Event Description:
As opposed to a show, the "Samba Party" is 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. We'll be pulling out all the stops for the Brazil Independence Day edition—our last Samba Party of the year! Don't miss this opportunity to learn to samba with Brazilian dance master Danielle Lima and then rock out to the live drumming of the Samba New York! Bateria under the leadership of Director, Philip Galinsky, a.k.a Dr. Samba. DJ sensation Anderson Trindade rounds out the festivities with a heavy dose of Brazilian grooves.

Founded and directed by percussionist/ethnomusicologist Philip Galinsky, Samba New York! is a world-renowned samba performance company dedicated to entertaining, educating, and uplifting people of all backgrounds with the exhilarating music and dance of Brazil. Having grown up immersed in Rio’s samba world, Danielle Lima is one of NYC’s foremost Brazilian dancers, teachers, and choreographers and founder of the Brasileirando Dance Group. Anderson Trindade is one of the leading DJs on the local Brazilian scene, supplying the soundtrack to some of the City's hottest events.
