Sambiesta is a Singapore-based percussion band with an Afro-Brazilian set-up, commonly referred to as Samba. Incepted in 2007, Sambiesta specialises in fusing Afro-Brazilian percussion with modern funk, and drum and bass. Besides the traditional Samba grooves, Sambiesta has created pop song mashups to make Samba music more accessible to everybody!


Sambiesta has performed at numerous venues including the Singapore Botanic Gardens and the DBS Foundation Outdoor Theatre at Esplanade. SAMBIESTA has also performed on international stages in Germany, Los Angeles, Liverpool, Spain and Korea. SAMBIESTA is the proud Champion of 2018’s Percumon Samba festival in Spain and 2019’s Wonju Dynamic Dancing Carnival in Korea.
