A samba festival in the Netherlands? In Heerlen? Yep, you got it, one lazy weekend I noticed a weird Facebook event near Maastricht and decided to go check it out. Turns out some of the regional Samba groups decided to throw a festival by taking over the small town of Heerlen, 20min from Maastricht, to bring some color and music to the locals with the Heerlen Samba Festival. Wasn’t exactly Rio, but definitely a funky event, not the sort of thing I expected to find that weekend. Good fun.

 

To share a bit of what took place…
