Do you like good music ? I fancy checking this out. Why not come along and meet up with a few others. We can meet in area adjacent to the Bar.

Samba! The sound of Brasil! Hearing the Bateria, the percussion orchestra, has to be one of the most uplifting musical experiences in the world. The Nottingham School of Samba has been performing for over 20 years. In between sets DJ Mista Shotta will be keeping the Brasilian music flowing, so you most certainly will need to bring your dancing shoes for this one.. ! Perhaps people can give exact locations via comments page.

You can have pre peep here to get the jist..

    What an absolutely cracking night, amazing vibe! I nearly bottled it, being my first event, but so glad I didn't. The samba music was irresistable, impossible not to dance, my feet are still throbbing! Great to meet you guys and thanks for making me feel welcome, cheers Red x

    Thank you for organising a great night. It's not something i would normally have gone to but it was a pleasant surprise!

    i did think at one point i was gonna get sacrificed in the dancing circle but managed to avoid the initiation..lol

  • John B.

    Well that was unexpected! the group came out looking like a Morris Band with drums, i smiled sweetly at the others while wondering if i could sneak out without being noticed but after a slow start the band turned up the pace and before long we were all on the dance floor givin it the big one. No strings or vocals just drums! Great night Jools, Really different.

      I find thats usually the case with a lot of live music....It takes time to warm up....thats really the beauty of live stuff

    Wow! Didn't expect such a cracking night so soon after new year's! A top event. Nice one Jools!

      Yea. Great night.

      January 5, 2014

    A top night out. Those drums surely tap into some primitive rhythmic centre of the brain, its impossible not to want to dance when they get going. Some great free events at The Contemporary, its one of Nottingham's hidden secrets. Thanks for organising Jools, I'm looking forward to more similar events.

  • Emma B

    Sounds like a fab night, sorry I missed it - looking forward to the one in the spring though!

    January 5, 2014

  • Annie

    Would really love to attend this event but won't arrive in Nottingham until late Feb. Hoping that there will be another event planned and will definitely attend then. Have a great night everyone :)

      Hi Annie, shame you missed an amazing night...but just thought I'd let you know, spoke to one of the band members and they're doing another night in April or May...well worth looking out for! Cheers Red

    This is my first Meet up. I'm bringing a friend, Natalie, with me. Not sure how I'll know who the group are, but you might spot me - I'm the one who clearly has no clue how to samba!

    If you are meeting for a drink before, let me know where...
