A unique Brazilian music quartet that presents all the sounds & rhythms of Brazil in a small band format
Sambossa 4 is a London based group that presents all the sounds & rhythms of Brazil in a small band format. Compact but very powerful, with music ranging from sultry bossa nova & grooving afrofunk to blistering samba, they have the ability to delight both the listener and the dancer.
Elisangela Mahogony from Salvador Bahia on vocals, whose strong voice, infectious energy & sensational stage presence & experience as both a singer & a professional dancer brings a new dimension to the band.
The hugely talented, multi instrumentalist Marcelo Andrade (from Rio de Janeiro) playing beautiful & colourful lines on saxophone and flute.
Guitarist Paul Rumbol who leads the band. Paul has immersed himself in World & Brazilian culture from an early age and has been collaborating with the most talented Brazilian performers for more than 25 years. He also plays the cavaquinho (small Brazilian guitar) & sings. Paul utilises his wonderful new guitar synthesiser to bring a full sound to this small line up and enables them to present a complete sound without using any backing tracks.
And the driving, grooving percussion and vocal talents of Xavier Osmir from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
2015 saw them release a highly acclaimed CD "Sambossa 4"
