About Samba Reggae
Samba Reggae is a musical movement from Salvador, Bahia in the north east of Brazil. Inspired by the civil rights movement in the United States of America, this mixture of Samba from Brazil and Reggae from Jamaica made an infectious fusion in which their Afro-Brazilian heritage can be explored and spread to many others.
Influenced by the Afro and Samba Reggae blocos of Northeast Brazil, Dendê Nation also has influences of Jazz, Rhythm and Blues, Hip Hop and funk fused respectfully into the stirring and uplifting rhythms of Afro-Brazil.
