Providing authentic, high quality Brazilian music and dance entertainment for special events, Samba New York! is a world-renowned samba performance company based in New York City.

As one of the most joyful, uplifting, and festive styles of music known to humankind, samba has become one of the best kept secrets in the wedding world. If you want a unique and special performance on your wedding day that will surely be different from what everyone else is doing, how about a samba show with drummers and costumed dancers? After all, nothing says "celebration" better than samba does.

Our basic samba show package for weddings comprises 3 drummers and 2 costumed dancers and can expand to as many performers as you need. If you want just drummers or just dancers, we can provide those options, too.

We also offer softer, jazzier Brazilian music for the cocktail reception part of your wedding.

Check out our promo videos below for samples of both of these performance options.

Samba New York was the perfect entertainment and live music choice for our wedding. Philip and Valerie are a pleasure to work with and great professionals. The drummers are excellent and their dancers are beautiful and got everybody on the dance floor. Samba New York was the highlight of our wedding and all our guests loved it, even those who never danced samba before had a lot of fun. We highly recommend Samba New York for your wedding, it's a carnival celebration for you and your guests, sure to be remembered.
