We are a community based percussion group, bringing the vibrant rhythms of Brazilian Samba and a selection of global beats to the streets, festivals and wider communities in 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 ten 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 please contact us.  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.

If you are interested in learning more about Samba rhythms, get on touch via our Contact page on our website and join us on Facebook for the latest updates.

We are nonprofit community group part of The Nelson Samba Collective Charitable Trust.
