SAMBA SOCIETY’S BIO:
Samba Society plays deep “roots” samba in the tradition popularized by Rio’s “Old Guard” of urban samba. The group’s repertoire features renditions of vintage and new sambas reminiscent of classic recordings from the 1970s. Under the artistic direction of Beto González, the 10-member group formed in early 2009 from the shared desire of a group of musicians to bring to Los Angeles a deeper connection with the historical legacy of samba. This legacy is founded on the rich musical heritage of Brazil that coalesced in the city of Rio de Janeiro at the turn of the 20th century and has continued for over a century.
