International Samba Congress
The International Samba Congress is a Rio de Janeiro/Los Angeles-based Brazilian cultural organization. We are dedicated to sharing true Brazilian music, dance, and history through telling the story of Samba. Our mission culminates in a three-day weekend of dance and instrument training, lectures, and master performances. Additionally, the ISC will host the first Adriana Lima Award, to be presented to a female dancer specializing in the characterization of the Malandro.
From May 19th to the 21st in Los Angeles California, the International Samba Congress will bring together over 30 Brazilian dance, music, cultural and history experts for a presentation unlike any other outside of Brazil. Join us as you expand your current knowledge, grow a deeper sense of connection to Brazilian culture, and experience the healing power of Samba!
