Take 5 with ZambabemJan 01

Zambabem / Upon A Moment
What genre of music and what can people expect when they book Zambabem for their Wedding?

We play a range of Brazilian music; Samba Rock which is a mix of samba with rock (rockabilly, swing), as well as Forro, Bossa Nova, Ska and MPB that will get everyone relaxed and moving.

What would you say to a couple trying to decide whether to book Zambabem as a 4 piece as opposed to a 6-piece band?

Zambabem as a 4-piece band will be a basic set up, playing more chilled music, whereas with the full band we have more upbeat songs and the addition of horns.
