Samba na Chuva is an all-female percussion and dance performance troupe based in Humboldt County.  Our name means "Samba in the rain" because of the long winters in Northern California. We perform various styles from Rio and Bahia.  As part of Grooversity, we also play the original, contemporary music of Marcus Santos.  Samba na Chuva strives to produce energetic high quality shows for audiences, but more importantly we focus on continuing our education of Brazilian music and dance. We are grateful to all our teachers and friends who have influenced us during our experiences with this amazing culture!
