Alma de Fogo
Samba Batucada Alma de Fogo (SBAdF) is a percussion group specializing in Carnaval samba style batucada drumming using rhythms from Rio de Janiero, Salvador, and Sao Paulo, Brazil. SBAdF is the only samba drumming group in El Paso with a unique style all their own!
We believe that everybody has a part to play in our band regardless of musical experience or background. SBAdF welcomes anyone who has a desire to learn drumming in a fun, relaxed atmosphere and will teach you to play many styles of Afro-Brazilian/Cuban percussion from samba and samba reggae to maracatu and beyond.
SBAdF was established in 2011 in an effort to bring the sounds of Brazilian music to the southwest. SBAdF has performed at various public and private events including weddings, cultural festivals, libraries, and art shows, just to name a few, in El Paso, Las Cruces, and Juarez. They quickly gained a reputation for lively, fun-filled performances that ignite the audience.
They are available to play at almost any type of event. Make your event different -- book Samba Batucada Alma De Fogo today!
