Act Profile

Rio Squad

Rio Squad are a professional group of Rio style Carnival drummers and performers.
The group consists of 3 to 5 drummers and and a minmum of 2 dancers, complete with beautiful costumes.
The band play traditional Brazilian rhythms created to make you dance. The band performs at carnivals, festivals, corporate events and clubs, playing anything from a short surprise set to a full club style onslaught of addictive up tempo dance floor rhythms that keep the audience moving all night.
The addition of the Rio Squad dancers makes this show compact but full of energy and spectacle. We may be small, but the show is mighty!
