Looking for Academic Sources on Samba

The databases listed below are multidisciplinary in focus, so you'll be able to identify and locate journal articles on samba or related aspects of samba from many different disciplinary perspectives.  If you'd like to search within a specific academic discipline (such as history, anthropology, or political science), use the databases listed on the next tab on this guide.

Note also that some of these databases include both popular and scholarly sources, so look for the "peer reviewed" limiter box.
