Under the name of Bloco X, Samba friends from all over the world meet to play together finest Samba tunes every year. Bloco X aims to give top-class Samba percussionists from like-minded groups the chance to play together on the highest level possible outside of Brazil.
In part we play the latest Samba Songs from Rio de Janeiro, on the other hand we honor the good old times and beautiful classic Samba Songs. About 100 percussionists, a dozen singers, cavaquinho and 7 string guitar players on stage guarantee an incredible experience of authentic Samba, good energy and a lot of fun for both, the audience and the musicians.
One of our focuses lies in the consolidation and development of the Samba scene outside of Brazil and in caring about friendships across the globe. The other main focus is to make our audience experience some of the magic energy that Samba creates. By the sound of 100 Samba drums, nobody can stand still.
As our meetings and rehearsals happen to be in Europe, Bloco X is proud to bring together players from almost all European countries plus some from even further away (Canada, USA, Lebanon, etc.).
