SWANMORE SAMBA BAND
Swanmore Samba Band are a drumming group open to ages 11+ and all abilities, run via Roynon Dance Swanmore, a performing arts school established for 40 years. Workshops are held by an experienced, passionate music teacher in order to learn new and exciting drum and performance skills every Tuesday term time within Swanmore College. The drumming band plays a fusion of samba styles and have gigged at local carnivals such as Romsey and Hedge End, as well as exciting events such as Winchester’s Hatfair, the longest running street arts event in the UK. They have also been featured on radio stations such as Voice FM. Swanmore Samba Band can be found on all relevant social media streams and all enquiries are very welcome, whether it’s to try out in the band, set workshops in schools, or to pencil in future performance opportunities. The organisers are also looking to start a separate youth band for younger ages 8-16! So, if you’re in the area, why not get in contact and then pop along for a free trial?
