Synopsis:

Upon graduating, our protagonist finds himself at a crossroads between choosing passion or practicality. Embarking on the unconventional path had always intrigued him yet the importance of stability sparks a dilemma within him. Should he chase a dream, or settle for something that pays the bills? Amidst this dilemma, he explores the depths of his strengths and talents through the exhilarating beats of Samba music, in all its sub-genres.

SMU Samba Masala is an Afro-Brazilian percussion band and one of few samba percussion groups in Singapore. Experience African rhythms and Brazilian melodies with distinctive Asian elements as the protagonist unveils the hidden beauty and potential of grounds unexplored. Familiar sounds like the ukulele and reggae vocals will also take centre stage, fusing seamlessly into the unorthodox Samba style of percussion.

Will the protagonist choose to pay his bills, or play his beats? Catch Samba Masala's multi-genre production to find out.
