Samba Pelo Mar means ‘Samba by the Sea’ in Portuguese. Samba as a music genre has its origins in Rio de Janeiro, the former capital of Brazil and Samba is recognized around the world as a symbol of Brazil and the Brazilian Carnival. Based on a Samba style, our music is adapted and fused with world rhythms composed by our Musical Director, Ann Day.
Since forming in 2007 we’ve gone from strength to strength, performing at a variety of venues across Kent, including the opening of Whitstable’s famous Oyster Festival & Canterbury Festival. As well as taking Bookings for Events, Samba Pelo Mar actively supports a number of Charitable causes. In 2016, more than £17,000 was raised for Pilgrims Hospices in Kent.
Our sound is dynamic, upbeat and makes people dance! Samba is colourful, enthusiastic, and brings a joyful community feel to any event.
We play at festivals, large parties, small gatherings, school transition workshops, charitable fundraising events, teaching and training opportunities, and team building events, to name a few.
Although this is a FREE event you will still need to book your guaranteed socially distanced ticket now to avoid disappointment as due to reduced capacity tickets are limited to the first 150 so are likely to sell fast..
We’re currently seeking volunteers to join our maintenance and event marshalling teams. If you could help in any way, please drop an email to [email protected]
We’d love to hear from you!
