Samba rock (also known as samba soul, samba funk, and sambalanço) is a Brazilian dance culture and music genre that fuses samba with soul, rock, and funk. It emerged from the dance parties of São Paulo’s lower-class black communities after they had been exposed to rock and roll and African-American music in the late 1950s.
