Led by 606 Club owner Steve Rubie & featuring Liliana Chachian- vocals, Samara is one of the most popular bands at the 606. The music is an infectious blend of Brazilian samba, Jazz & Latin. “Cracking Latin-jazz” Time Out

“SAMARA” is a five-piece jazz/Latin group led by the 606 Club's own "Guv'nor" Steve Rubie on sax and flute, and suffice it to say we all think the guys in the band are just great! The pianist Neil Angilley works with Vanessa Mae, Shirley Bassey and Down to the Bone. Dill Katz, the bass player is visiting professor at the Guildhall, while Nic France the drummer has worked with just about everyone, including Dave Gilmore (Pink Floyd) and Bill Withers. 

Singer Liliana Chachian is considered to be one of the finest Brazilian vocalists currently working in Europe, with an unerring gift for melody and phrasing. The music is an infectious blend of Brazilian Samba, jazz/Latin and Soul, and everyone has a great time. And watch out for their Special EFG London Jazz Festival Guest!
