Samba Team Introductions

Bloco Brasilidade (Hamamatsu)

Bloco Brasilidade is a team that is made up of a mix of Samba-loving Brazilian and Japanese people, who are based in Hamamatsu. We always look forward to this time of year when all our friends gather.

This year’s theme is based on mermaid legends and the mysteries of the ocean and we put our hearts into making each costume and decoration. Brasilidade is going to be lit this year too! Please give us your support!


We are a team from Shizuoka formed in 2007 made up of around 80 Japanese-Brazilian and Japanese members!

Last year for our team’s 10th anniversary we performed for the first time in the Asakusa Samba Carnival.

We also took part in Asakusa this year. For 2018, BLOCO SHIZUOKA’s theme is Afro-Brazilian Culture! Please look forward to it!

Samba team Aquarela (Otsu, Shiga)

Samba team Aquarela was formed in 2008, and this year we celebrate our 10th anniversary.

We are very grateful to be able to join the contest from Shiga for the sixth time with the support of the Hamamatsu bateria team again this year.

Our team is small but we will dance with all we have to help promote Brazilian culture!

G.R.E.S. Acadêmicos da Glória (Tokyo)

We are Glória and this will be our second time performing! Our team, which formed last October, will be having our first anniversary soon.

This year, our theme will the symbol of our team—the various emotions we experienced since our formation and our team’s growth expressed through the changing of the Seasons.

Please look forward to our Samba that has developed over the past year!


Our team is a mix of Brazilian and Japanese people from Nagoya, Toyota and Toyohashi. It will be our 6th consecutive year performing in the Hamamatsu Cup.

This year’s theme is “Various Festivals of Brazil”. Starting with Carnivals, then the Amazonian Boi Bumbá, Festa Junina, and the Football World Cup, various festivals will unfold though the parade! Please look forward to it!

Escola de Samba Hamamatsu Alegria Independente (Hamamatsu)

We want to show everyone how great Brazil’s representative culture, Samba is and enjoy it together! That’s why we continue our activities based here in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka.

We perform every year at the Shizuoka Samba Carnival held in May.

New members are always welcome, so if you are interested in trying Samba, come and talk to us. Let’s enjoy Samba together!
