Some of us travel every year to play in Wellington for the Cuba Dupa festival! Join now and you can experience the buzz of playing with all the other Samba bands in NZ to a huge crowd while parading down Cuba Street!
Contact us via the contact page if you would like to join the band or the dancers, or if you would like to book us for your festival or event. You can also book us for corporate workshops and team-building events. All instruments provided!
We are a community based percussion group, bringing the vibrant rhythms of Brazillian Samba and a selection of globals beats to the streets, festivals and wider communities of the Top of The South.
We are the Nelson Sambassadors (previously known as Samba de Sol) and we have been part of the Nelson community performing at gigs and festivals in our region for the last eleven years. We love to play and dance and we will be bringing our music to the Nelson streets this Summer!
If you would like to join our band, or would like to book the band and/or dancers to perform at your event, simply enter your enquiry via our Contact page. We would love to hear from you!
As a community group, we run regular intro courses and workshops for adults who are keen to play in the band or join our dancers. We also provide our directors and drums for team-building and corporate or other group workshops.
If you are interested in learning more about Samba rhythms, or want to know where our next gig is, keep an eye on our Events page and join us on facebook www.facebook.com/nelsonsambassadors for the latest updates.
Please join us to play or dance in the Masked Parade!
This is a great time to join us as we build up our pieces for Summer and our first gig of the season is always a hit. The Nelson Masked Parade kicks off the summer events and we love to get our community involved with playing, dancing and cosume making, so come on down!
We will be working on new music and dances to keep you warm and moving your body and brain cells with the emphasis on fun, learning and making some great music.
Cost is only $80 for the term (9 weeks) or $10 a session. Come along on Wednesday to the Granary in Founders Park just before 7pm.
We provide you with instruments, ear protection. Just bring yourself.
