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 Summertime event will feature an official dance contest to select Samba New York's 2018 “King of the Drums” — O Rei da Bateria.

If you are a male samba dancer and at least 21 years old, we invite you to register for the contest by sending your full name, contact phone number, and a short video of you dancing samba to [email protected] Space in the contest is limited. Both amateur and professional dancers are welcome.

In addition to the cont...est, the event will feature a dance lesson with Samba New York’s 2017 Queen of the Drums, Dani Carioca, who will also be our MC for the evening; a set of live batucada by the Samba New York! drummers, under the leadership of Dr. Samba; samba singer, Ana Fernandez; and special guests, Te Encontro No Samba — a group of 10 stellar sambistas who will be kicking off the Party with a Brazilian-style “roda de samba” (samba circle).

Our esteemed judges for the contest will be Silvana Magda, Diego Kelman Ajuz, and Antonio Negreiros.

Samba New York! wishes to acknowledge the sponsors for this event: BrazilCarnivalShop

Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
