Sambuka are a community based percussion band who have been exciting audiences and recruiting converts to the delights of afro-brazilian rhythms for 20 years in 2011!
Based at St. Mary's Church, Old High Street, Hemel Hempstead we welcome new people to the band frequently. No experience necessary!
Major performances have included Notting Hill Carnival and London's Thames Festival. We are available to perform at all kinds of functions - even weddings and christenings!
We have a wide range of instruments - so you don't need to bring your own. First time is free! After that its £3 (free for under 16's and students). Workshops run from 8pm to 10pm on Monday's (except Bank Holidays) and Holy Week.
Sambuka are led by Bob Garland. Bob has studied and performed in Brazil several times, including with top samba schools in the Rio Carnival and in Salvador, Bahia.
We also invite top guest teachers along from time to time. Previous teachers include Sam Alexander, Joe Hanson, Dave Willetts, Mestre Mags, Fred Tureka, Beto (Estacio Da Sa).
