Muzenza was part of the wave of bands inspired by the Black Power movement of the 70s. Founded in 1981 by former founders of Olodum, Muzenza extended the samba-reggae tradition. Muzenza has appeared on recordings by artists such as Caetano Veloso, Daniela Mercury, Margareth Menezes, and Gal Costa. Like Ilê Aiyê, from Liberdade, Muzenza emphasizes African-based themes through its colorful costumes, percussion-based music, and African dance inspired choreography. Muzenza has won best Carnival band in its category several times.
