!! Samba in Bremen !!
Brazilian rhythms in the north of Germany
Brazilian Samba music in the cold north of Germany - how does that fit ?
In the mid-eighties, a couple of enthusiats gatherd for the first
Samba group in Bremen. Since then a lot of
Samba groups have arisen.
Beside the classic Samba batucada
known from the carnival parades of Rio de Janeiro, they also play
the rhytms from the north of Brazil, such as the
Samba Reggae from Bahia. Additionally
most of them discovered their very own rhythms.
Among the Samba groups of Bremen, there is a very active communication.
The highlight of the year is the annual
Bremer Karneval, first
performed in 1986, where a continuously growing number of samba, percussion
and brass bands and masked groups from Bremen, Germany and
the neighbouring countries meet to drive out the winter.
