Tauranga Samba is a Brazilian style drumming and percussion band. We play our own unique and funky blend of Batucada: a richly rhythmic and infectious style of Samba, the heartbeat of the Rio Carnival.


We have been together since 2007 and have an enthusiastic group who perform regularly at events in Tauranga and throughout the North Island. We are a mixed bunch from all over the world, united in our common interest of making seriously good music and having fun.


We are available to perform at festivals and events locally and throughout the North Island. Listen out for us… we guarantee your toes will start tapping!
