Welcome to the Nelson Sambassadors

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.
