Nelson’s Samba Band

Nelson’s Samba de Sol is a community based percussion group formed in July 2010 to bring the vibrant rhythms of Brazilian Samba to the streets, festivals and community of Nelson.

The vision for Samba de Sol is similar to other community Samba bands around the country; the opportunity for anyone to be involved, regardless of musical ability. In order to cater for differentiation, we will have three groups. This will comprise of a beginners, intermediate, and performers group.

If you are interested in learning more about Samba rhythms, intro courses are running regularly. If you are interested, go to the Courses page on this website.
