Samba Azul is a rhythm-centric, Brazilian-inspired jazz outfit led by drummer Adam Osmianski bringing the spirit of Brazil to the heart of London. The band highlights many of the rich musical landscapes found throughout South America’s largest country from Samba to Forró, Candomble, Tropicália, and MPB. The band has been constantly evolving since the it’s formation in 2013. What started as an acoustic trio has grown into an electric nine-piece. After a headlining show at London’s Jazz Cafe last year, the band finally decided to head to the studio to record their long-overdue debut album which they are launching with us this afternoon at PizzaExpress.
