Garden City Samba


Garden City Samba is a community percussion and dance group specialising in Brazilian carnival rhythms. We welcome new members of all ages – no previous experience needed!

We train and rehearse on a Tuesday evening usually at St Francis College, Letchworth, but occasionally elsewhere - so first timers please email us at info@gardencitysamba.com to check where we're going to be beforehand! (Please do not contact St Francis as they just hire the space to us and do not know details of our sessions, etc.)

We offer affordable family and concessionary rates.

We're available for performances, events (community or corporate), parades and educational workshops.

We're led by acclaimed percussionist and award-winning tutor, Ravin Jayasuriya, and leading exponent of Brazilian contemporary dance, Marcia Magliari.

For info on our dance sessions please look under the dance listings (times and rates differ for dance).

See our website, Facebook or Twitter for more details, or email us at info@gardencitysamba.com

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.

    This is a great band to belong to - lovely friendly people, excellent teaching, lots of fun, something for all abilities, no pressure to perform unless you want to, plenty of opportunities to progress and play a range of different instruments, and most importantly great rhythms to lift the soul. Highly recommended!
