Dance ChristchurchWhat is Samba

What is Brazilian Samba?
A syncopated, smooth dance style which was invented in the late 1800s as part of Brazil's carnaval celebrations. Carnaval sambas were typically performed by large percussion ensembles, and were an expression of Brazil's West African heritage. Later on, in the 1920s and '30s, samba became increasingly complex, as writers such as Ary Barroso transformed it into a pop style, blending African rhythms with European melodies.

A dance and type of music from Brazil originating from African slaves. The dance is very difficult as performed by Brazilians in comparison to formal "ballroom" dancing which is highly stylized. Men and women dance samba differently and together yet without touching. The dance for the women can be characterized as quick symmetrical feet movement with each foot twisting on the heel. This foot movement is accompanied by hip and shoulder gyrations creating a dance that agitates the entire body. Men also perform the same foot motion but not accompanied by violent hip and shoulder gyrations.

Samba music is in 2/4 time (in two) with a high bass drum beat on the first beat, and the lower foundation beat on the second beat. The lower second beat must be the same or of lesser intensity than the first higher beat.

Carnaval
Brazil's annual national Lent celebration, known for its colorful parades, wild street parties, and awesome live performances by large samba "schools." Similar to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, though Carnaval takes place all across Brazil, and different cities try to top each other with their insane partying; in recent years it has become a more regimented, controlled event... But, still... what a party!

Axé
A contemporary Afro-Bahian pop style, incorporating samba, rock, soul and other musical influences.
