Samuca e a selva

Neotropical Brazilian Boogie

Samuca e a Selva is a band stablished in 2015, by the union of the charismatic and energetic singer and songwriter Samuel Samuca with nine musicians from successful projects in the contemporary music scene in São Paulo, such as Nômade Orquestra and Orquestra Brasileira de Música Jamaicana.

In the Selva’s musical diversity, Brazilian regional music, jazz and Latin rhythms explode into vigorous and surprising concerts.

Releasead in August 2022, “Ditados Populares Dançantes” is the third studio album by Samuca e a Selva. The album comes with the dancing and multicultural sound that marks the path of the group. "Ditados Populares Dançantes" is an original project, which innovates by placing the public as the protagonist of the composition process: the songs were composed from themes and words sent by the band's fans on social networks. The new work features ten new songs, four composed during the pandemic and another six during the 10-day immersion in the country side.

In 2021, Samuca e a Selva released the videoclip for the single “Coragem”, the remix EP “TERRA” (2021), entirely produced by women, and closed the year with the powerful single and videoclip “Jussara”. The protagonist Jussara represents the strength and freedom of Brazilian women, in a video that rescues the high-spirited atmosphere of old dancehalls.

In 2020, to rock the Carnival, the band released a special track, "Passeando em Mim".


Their debut album, “Madurar” (2016, YbMusic), earned the band a nomination for the 28th Brazilian Music Award as best group in the popular song category.


The second album “Tudo que Move É Sagrado” (2018, YbMusic), which features names such as Criolo, Luedji Luna, Liniker, Siba and Filipe Catto, to honour and celebrate the 70 years of Ronaldo Bastos, is among the best albums of 2018 of the APCA Award.
