Description: Chicada – Tasmanian Samba Band
Chicada is a community based Samba band, the first of its kind in Tasmania, bringing the exciting rhythms, flavours and the drumming ‘bateria’ sounds from Brazil to Tasmania. Chicada will transport audience to the vibrant street sounds of Brasilian carnival with rhythms and techniques from Salvador do Bahia like Samba Reggae, de Rumba, and Baion, to name few and of course the saucy sounds of Rio with Samba Enredo.
Since forming in 2008 Chicada have found great success performing at various festivals including The Falls Festival, The Cygnet Folk Festival, The Wooden Boat Festival, the Mid-Winter Festival and the Tulip Festival.
Bring your Brazilian headdresses and dancing shoes kids, expect to have a wild time!
