Following their single “Magnetize” Southampton’s Tuto Tribe have released the band’s samba rock theme tune, “Let’s Samba Rock It!”, as a single. The track lifts the lid on what really marks them as a band to party to as well as hinting at their underlying ideals of world citizenship, translating as unity, helping each other and zero cultural barriers.

The song is game of two halves, the song starts with the main samba rock phrase and horn riff and introduces the genre to new ears. The more raucous second half transports the listener into rockier territory, Tuto going into overdrive and adding animal noise punctuation and Blair bouncing his rich bari tones. Great live and for radio at 3 minutes 11 seconds, it keeps the listener entertained throughout. A five-piece, multi-national original samba rock band based in Southampton (UK), Tuto Tribe was born in 2022 from a fusion of diverse influences which include Jorge Ben, The Doors and Manu Chao, creating a modern, bright Brazilian sound with catchy, sing-along hooks and rhythms influenced by samba, rock, Jamaican music and jazz, delivered live through fun-fueled and interactive shows.
