If they're near the top of the best samba artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top samba bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the samba band names themselves.

This is a list that includes artists like Ana Carolina and Chico Buarque. Make sure to vote on your favorite artists on this list. What's better, Diego Zangado or Manfred Hausleitner?

All important, significant and iconic names in samba music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new samba bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of samba, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into samba music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good samba bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent samba bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best samba bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest samba musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular samba bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
