From early childhood in São Paulo, DJ Sampa has been inspired by different music styles. He started his DJ career in the early nineties with playing Samba, Samba-Rock, Rap, and Soul. He discovered Forró in the late nineties when he frequented a forró club with his capoeira group. Shortly before the millennium he moved to Switzerland and soon grew a reputation in the Latin music scene as DJ Sampa.
Sampa studied traditional forró in 2014 and went on from there to become a cultural producer of a weekly forró event in Zurich and founded Forró Vinyl, a monthly event.
Sampa has an impressive collection of vinyl and brings together the experience of a professional DJ with his passion for Forró. He is a frequent guest DJ on the European forró scene and also back home in Brazil.
