Quintal do Samba London!
Quintal do Samba is a lot more than just a Samba group. Quintal do Samba is a Brazilian way of life. The group offers a nice blend between rhythm, passion and joy, with a lot of colour, movement, and above all simplicity. Despite being one of the most popular and in demand samba groups in London, Quintal do Samba still maintains a very traditional line and what is truly defined as a backyard philosophy (Filosofia de fundo de quintal) samba roots. Every appearance by Quintal do Samba recreates the atmosphere of the backyard parties and street corner bars in the cities of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and more or less all across the country. The laid back and carefree style of the group, produces such an intimacy with the public, where everyone is welcome to take part, singing along, dancing or quite simply clapping their hands. Quintal do Samba bring real carnival vibes to any night.
