SAMBA REGGAE


Samba reggae is a combination of Brazilian samba—derived from African music brought to Brazil via the African slave trade—and Caribbean reggae. Samba reggae was first developed in Bahia, Brazil, in the 1970s as an effort to strengthen the Afro-Brazilian community. 

The genre has since become popularized in Brazil and throughout the world. It highlights the ties among African-based cultures and promotes pride in African heritage. Yet, at its core, the music belongs to all people and empowers all those who play, listen, or dance to its beats.
