Samba Bom - Press Release.

Samba Bom, Live Brazilian music & dance.

Samba Bom, a Midwest-based music ensemble, offers the authentic sounds of Brazil mixed with the flavor of carnaval. They play a unique mix of Brazilian popular song styles, including:
* Samba, the energetic national rhythm of Brazil
* Bossa Nova, a laid-back, seductive sound that merges jazzy melodies with the essence of the samba beat (popularized by Antonio Carlos Jobim and songs like “The Girl from Ipanema”)
* Brazilian Jazz, under the influence of American Jazz, this the newest style of world music.
* Olodum, an rhythm-heavy, Afro-Brazilian sound tinged with reggae (popularized by Olodum)
* Forro, a lively syncopated sound from the rural northeastern Brazil
* Chorinho, a richly melodic sound driven by string instruments like guitar, flute & cavaquinho.
* Pagode, a funky Rio "party music" sound
* Batucada, an exciting, all-percussive jam session that brings any audience to its feet to dance along with the group - just like carnaval in Rio de Janeiro

No matter what kind of event you are organizing, Samba Bom can enhance it with energetic and creative music that your guests will enjoy. We can also provide additional musicians
and Brazilian dancers either with dance classes or with authentic Carnaval costumes to transform your event with a taste of tropical Brazil. Samba Bom features musicians, many of
them Brazilians, who have performed together for over twelve years. They play at a variety of venues including music festivals, nightclubs, private functions and schools. Samba Bom is under
the direction of Mo Marchini, a native of Brazil, who has been playing in the St. louis area for over 28 years. Samba Bom enjoys an enthusiastic following through its website
(, a direct mailing list, e-mail list, press releases to local and national media, press clippings and radio/TV interviews. Samba Bom can work to promote any event
with the original CD “Samba Bom, Samba Mundo” photos, posters and other materials. Samba Bom also offers workshops to schools, organizations and businesses throughout the
United States and the world.
