We are back!


North Somerset Samba are back up and running, rehersing and ready to bring a splash of colour and loads of fun to your event! 



We are a colourful and energetic Samba drumming band based in Clevedon, North Somerset that will get you swaying to the Brazilian rhythms!

The band is led by our musical director, John, who has been a Maestro for many years.


John leads our weekly samba sessions for our members to develop our overall band sound, improve techniques and build our repertoire.


As a self-funded volunteer band, our players receive no remuneration for band performances. Fees charged go towards workshops, equipment, instruments, instrument upkeep and rehearsal space hire.

We have members of all ages, currently ranging from their 20s into their 80s and we welcome new players to join us throughout the year.


We join forces with our sister band Oya Batucada Samba band, Birmingham. Through this partnership we have played at some big Samba events including Brazilica and Super Samba Sundays.


Come See us in Action Soon!
