Samba

Samba ist eine deutsche Band aus Münster (Westfalen). Mitte der Neunziger bei Sony als hoffnungsvolle Newcomer im Windschatten der Hamburger Schule unter Vertrag, entwickelte sich die Gruppe um Songwriter Knut Stenert vom wortwitzigen deutschsprachigen Punk hin zu anspruchsvollem Indie-Pop, ohne dabei ein Massenpublikum ansprechen zu können. Durchgängiges Merkmal der Songs sind die extrem einfallsreichen, assoziativen deutschsprachigen Texte von Stenert. Der Name der Band geht auf einen seit den siebziger Jahren beliebten Sportschuh der Firma Adidas zurück.
