Sometimes referred to as 'Viramundo lite', Sambossa 4 are a unique UK based Brazilian music quartet that present all the sounds & rhythms of Brazil in a small band format.
Compact but very powerful, with music ranging from sultry bossa nova & grooving afro-funk to blistering samba, they have the ability to delight both the listener and the dancer.
The quartet delivers this original & full sound by the ingenious use of a guitar synthesizer enabling guitar, bass & keyboard sounds at the simultaneously, a small kit/cajon set up providing drums & percussion, strong female vocals & infectious energy completed by beautiful & colourful lines on soprano saxophone & flute.
