Born and raised in the cradle of Samba, Mayombe Masai is a treasure; the true personification of Brasilian Art & Culture.

His ancestry has strongly influenced his direction as an artist, which has transcended well beyond phenomenal technique, freedom of movement, musicality and a historical knowledge that goes beyond what any book or academic text can portray.

He carries in his body the salvation of Brazilian culture past and present, that he gives, to the world through Afro Brasilian dances, percussion, Samba no Pé (Male and Female!) and other popular dance styles of past and present Brazil. Mayombe is a master at connecting the "primitive" samba of roots to the contemporary, without losing it’s soul and essence.

In samba performances, his versatility of movement, agility and mastery of his own technique has seen him recognised with multiple accolades around Brazil. To name our chosen top few in a list of many:

* First prize in the championship ‘Swing do Black’ in 2017
* 9 years parading as passista for world-renowned samba school GRES Academicos do Salguiero
* 4 years parading with GRES Estácio De Sá, as the school’s first ever King of the Bateria

His name, his soul and the person that he is, is SAMBA!

We are humbled, honoured and so passionate about having him as our very first guest to Australia!
