Join us for a wonderful long weekend of sessions, workshops with high-profile mestres of the European Samba scene for all levels, children's programs, stalls and concerts. The Samba Night with great concerts is only one of the highlights!
How it became what it is:
When the first Sambanale took place in 2010, hardly anyone could imagine what the festival would develop into in just a few years! Still manageable and family-friendly but with top-class workshops, international guests and lots of attention to detail!
On the Saturday of the festival, well-known mestres from Germany and the Netherlands, France etc. will present the latest grooves from Brazil, improve playing techniques and rehearse choreographies.
Saturday evening and Sunday will be dedicated to stage performances. The big samba party on Saturday evening begins with the workshop presentations and continues with performances by the bands. On Sunday the participating groups play on 3 stages from 11 a.m. and present the whole variety of samba.
The Sambanale has turned into an established Samba Encontro of the German Samba scene and ranks high on the popularity scale. Places in workshops sell fast. The glade gives the festival exactly the right flair. If you want to get hold of one of the nearby holiday apartments, you have to book early. The Outdoorfreaks, camper and vanlife sambistas camp out directly at the edge of the forest. Many friendships have developed at the Sambanale. The atmosphere on the site away from daily hassels, allows you to get quickly into conversations, hang out, party and of course play samba together.
