This is for all those who love those crazy syncopated Latin rhythms and would like to take part in actually playing it for real. This is a very authentic Bahia samba class taught by a just incredible teacher with an encyclopedic knowledge of all things samba.
The most amazing thing about learning samba is that it's street music and so you need no previous experience of playing an instrument or an understanding of music - literally just a heart beat will suffice.
This is a long standing community samba group and we're always welcoming new members of all levels - most came to the group with zero experience so the understanding for new joiners is definitely there.
Other bonuses include playing live gigs and festivals (we're playing Joy Festival this year) plus a chance to march on November 5th in the wildest of all bonfire events - (no events are compulsory for members).
Class is every Wednesday 5 minutes walk from Lewes station just 4 stops from Brighton. We start 7pm and rock through till 8:30pm then de-camp to the pub to plan great things!
I've been part of this group for almost 2 years now and without a doubt it stands high amongst my best ever decisions.
So what are you waiting for? Oh and the first session is free!
