About A Bunda

A Bunda is one of the oldest, largest and most vital samba schools in Europe. We have been performing at carnivals and festivals in Sweden, Denmark, Finland,  Germany, France and Italy since 1984, and many of our more than 100 members have played or danced with groups at the Rio de Janeiro Carnival. In 2007 a delegation of 12 A Bundistas took part in the 2nd International Encontro do Samba at the Cidade do Samba in Rio, performing together with members of Curicica and Monobloco, and also paraded through the Sambodromo among the 2500 participants of  União do Parque Curicica, the final group appearing at the last night of the Carnival.


A Bunda took an active part in the first three European Encontros do Samba in Uppsala  1986, Åbo 1987 and London 1989, arranged and hosted the fourth Encontro in Gothenburg 1997 (with 600 participants from many different countries) and participated with a large delegation in the fifth Encontro in Villeneuve-Sur-Lot 1999.

We play Carnival Samba within the Brazilian Samba Batucada and Samba Enredo traditions, but like every Brazilian Samba School, we have developed our

own individual style, and are well-known for our high-energy output and for the dramatic structuring of rhythms and choreographies in our stage shows, which

also incorporate fire-eating, acrobatics etc. We also include elements of Samba Funk, Maracatú and other Afro-Brazilian music styles.


If you join A Bunda you will have the chance to play or dance authentic Brazilian-style Carnival Samba at the highest professional level available in Europe.

If you hire us for a parade, stage show or other type of performance we will add colour, energy and enthusiasm to any kind of event.

We are a non-profitable cultural association based in Gothenburg, with over 100 members. Samba and afro-brazilian dance and beats are the way we share our love for art.  See one of our shows and we promise you will be back for more.
