VamoLá! is a Seattle-based Brazilian drum and dance ensemble that brings the spirit of Carnaval to life through vibrant parades and performances.

Bringing the celebratory spirit of Brazilian Carnival, the emphasis of these performances is on samba, yet includes a rich array of other music and dance styles from the radical, hip-hop rhythms of samba-reggae to the elegant, forceful beat of maracatu.

As soon as VamoLá launched the pulsating samba rhythms and the dancers started stepping, the ballroom was transformed into a sea of dance, color, and over 60 minutes of high-energy, uplifting experience. So many guests were dancing to the beat that the floor beams were shaking! In a nutshell-VamoLá rocked the house!
