*Brazista Samba de Gafieria*
Introducing the Brazista Project.
Unlike the well known Carnival Samba experience, Samba de Gafieira is a partner dance in the Samba style. Originally a ballroom dance in and around Rio, it is now more of commoner’s dance, loosely translating to ‘honky-tonk.’ With tango influences and acrobatic moves, this is a next level Samba experience.
The Brazista project aims to revitalize the Old Sambas and this special dance style. Gafieira dance classes will be held from 930 pm- 10pm to prepare you for the band.
TIOSAMBABALANCO BAND brings together the best of the Samba Musicians in NY, who have worked with prominent Brazilians artists like Bebel Gilberto, Novos Baianos, Leny Andrare, Gilberto Gil and many more.
