South London Samba

Lewisham Music has teamed up with South London Samba to bring you 12 weeks of high-energy drumming workshops for young people aged 10-17.

 

The project is open to anyone, whether you’ve been beating drums for years or never laid eyes on one. The workshops will be led by our team of friendly professional musicians from South London Samba, a collective of young people who love to drum.

 

Expect to bring some good vibes, playing energetic music inspired by Latin, Caribbean and African rhythms, blended together with a South London twist. You’ll have the chance to learn new skills, work alongside other young musicians and work towards some carnival-style performances.
