Hi! Could anyone please explain what a samba is? I know about Black Out, but can't imagine what you mean with samba. Thanks for any explanations and sorry for the perhaps silly question.

A samba is when the person starts making involuntary movements, usually shaking or twitching. It happens for the same reasons as blackout. The person may or may not be conscious when it happens. It is called a samba because it might look as if the person is dancing. It can range from slight twitching to violent shaking and complete loss of control.

Hope this helps
