The group’s signature rhythm mixes two styles that can be considered sub-genres of samba, pagode and axé, that has seduced followers all over the world and made an indelible mark on pagode.
During the summer of 2011, Harmonia do Samba recorded its third DVD, “Selo de Qualidade” (Mark of Quality) and in May 2012 released their 13th album, “Tudo de Novo” (Everything Over Again).
Harmonia do Samba has been nominated for Latin Grammy Awards in the United States for two consecutive years, in 2008, “Best Contemporary Regional Music Album,” and “Best Album – Samba/Pagode” in 2009. The group also performed at the Latin Grammies in 2008.
Many famous Brazilian artists have collaborated with the group including Ivete Sangalo, Sandra de Sá, Cláudia Leite, Carla Perez, Léo Santana (Parangolé), Márcio Victor (Psirico), Saulo Fernandes (Banda Eva) and group Exaltasamba.

Leticia with A-List’s Mike Ruiz at Meoko Launch 7/18/11

I danced with A-List’s Mike Ruiz for the Meoko Vodka launch at Thompson and Watts Streets yesterday (7/18/11). Dancing on the street to Ivo and Manhattan Samba’s rhythms in 90-degree weather felt like a little slice of Rio! I definitely made the most of it and spread the samba love all around that corner in the midst of rush-hour traffic. Thanks all! (The video doesn’t show that this was the fastest costume change ever!)
