Book Samba Galez

Street Carnivals? Parades? Club gig? Promotional Events?

If you need to “drum up” support, we are your guys!

Since 1990, Samba Galêz has been thrilling audiences at parades, festivals, clubs and major events in Wales and beyond – and we’re still pushing the boundaries of Latin percussion, earning recognition as one of the top bands of our kind in the UK.

Don’t let the ‘Samba’ in our name fool you – we DO do Samba (and very well too!) – but we are equally adept at other Brazilian, Cuban and African rhythmic forms as well. Our repertoire includes Samba Reggae and Maracatu from the northeast of Brazil; Conga and 6/8 rhythyms from Cuba and the Caribbean; and even rootsier stuff from West Africa.

We are also locally famous for our ad-hoc busks in Cardiff City Centre. So if you’re out and about on a Saturday afternoon, keep your ears open!



Our group of dancers bring extra energy, colour and dynamism to our performances. Be aware though, they tend to wear a few more clothes than they do in Rio! 

Samba Galêz dance reflects the range of musical styles of the band and its rich fusions. 

Get in touch!

If we sound like what you are seeking for your event, large or small. local or not, get in touch. We will do everything we can to accommodate you.
