Samba, together with football and beautiful women, is what springs to mind when we think of Brazil. We wish to transcend such clichés and take samba for what it is. And that is the great discovery of this film: that samba cannot be reduced simply to dance and lascivious hip movements. Samba is also word, language, text, lyrics or simply said a way of life. The composer and singer Martinho da Vila is guiding us through todays world of Samba and we meet with his Samba school in Rio de Janeiro, the Vila Isabel, winner of Carnaval 2013. With the participation of Nana Mouskouri, Martinho Da Vila, the Samba School Vila Isabel, Mart'nalia, Maira Freitas, Ney Matogrosso, Leci Brandao, Moyses Marques, Zeca Baleiro, Paula Lima...and many others. O Samba is in the Official Selection of the DOK.fest Munich 2014.
