Based in Vancouver, Canada, Sambata is a percussion school and musical ensemble that plays a powerful and unique blend of music drawing on the rich traditions of Afro-Cuban and Brazilian popular and folkloric music. Led by Paul Bray, Sambata delivers high energy, inspiring performances in parades, clubs and corporate events throughout the Greater Vancouver area. Since its inception in 2000, Sambata has touched thousands of lives with our brand of innovative arrangements, cross-cultural instrumentation and exuberant spirit.


Sambata’s performing bateria of musicians is a well oiled, fully mobile (processional), weather-proof groove machine guaranteed to get things shaking. We perform on a wide variety of percussion instruments and can present sets for parades, clubs and parties alike. Though usually a percussion ensemble, Sambata can also work with a cast of Brazilian dancers who add a magical and spectacular element to our sets.
