We're a friendly group of people based in Parramatta that love to drum! We're always looking for new people to join us. We meet most Tues nights and learn and play some beats from the streets of Rio! We also dabble in some Brazilian regional styles such as funk, samba-reggae, maculele, Afro & Afoxe. It sounds scary, but it absolutely isn't! We make it very easy, and beginners are very very welcome and encouraged to come and give it a go! All drums are provided, so come along, have some fun and make some noise with us! We also get the opportunity to perform from time to time at street festivals, the Easter Show, small music festivals and so on. Performing is not compulsory but it's a fun way to show off what you've been learning! We hope to meet some of you soon!
Come and try a little Brazilian drumming. Whether you are looking to try something a little different, or to experience a taste of Rio Carnival, or to do something rhythmic with your hands, heart and mind, or if you just want to jam with a bunch of friendly folks, then this session is for you. So come along and try it out! Cost of the session is $15, payable on the night. Doors open from 7pm, and we get started around 10-15 mins after that. Absolutely no experience necessary ... don't worry if you are a little nervous, we'll give you something very simple to start with. Just come and have a blast with us and help us make some noise! We'll make you feel very welcome. All drums are provided, there's plenty of parking outside, and it's also just a 5 min walk from Parramatta train station. Just wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and bring a bottle of water with you in case you get thirsty! http://www.facebook.com/WesternSydneySamba Children over 12 also welcome
