The Brazilian Samba Percussion Ensemble at Corporation Primary, headed by music teacher Mr Muhammad Dzuhri Juniwan, has performed for several community events since the group started in 2010.

Led by the strong belief that the dynamism of the Samba beats attracts both the young and the old, the group has performed at the Brazilian Carnavale @ Marina Barrage 2011, the Standard Chartered Marathon 2011, National Day Parades and the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Performing Arts Showcase 2012. The events showcased the students talents and garnered much appreciation from the public.
