About us

Samba de Souza was founded in Stockholm 1985 by the brazilian samba dancer Maria de Souza. Maria was born in the state of Maranhão (Nordeste) but moved later to Rio de Janeiro, where she joined the samba community and the samba school Portela. When she arrivied to Sweden, she wanted to teach samba to the Swedish audience and share the beauty of the brazilian culture.

Today, the Samba de Souza Carnival group/Samba School is a wonderful mix of swedes, brazilians and other nationalities. The school includes the traditional brazilian live drum band, "batería".  Approximately we are 40 active members.

Samba de Souza™ performs at a number of events around Sweden, public and private. This includes street carnival parades, stage performances, enterprise kick-off, anniversaries, weddings, exhibitions, TV-shows, football games etc.
