Welcome to the Samba Tawe web site
Unfortunately Samba Tawe is no longer operational.
We are waiting for a grand farewell party in the spring of 2018
For over 20 years Samba Tawe has played an evocative and energetic mix of Brazilian, Cuban and African rhythms to audiences at a wide variety of events across the UK. Since its formation in Swansea in 1994 the group has grown and developed not only musically but also in size so that today the combined ranks of bateria (drummers) and dancers now number over 40 members. The amazing energy of original and traditional music scores and visual impact of exciting dance movements combine to create a riot of colour, movement and infectious rhythms ensuring that our performances never go unnoticed, come rain or shine!
Interested in joining us?
If you are interested in joining our group, we meet to rehearse every Thursday at St.Philip's Community Centre from
7pm to 9pm where you can come along to our drop- in sessions, meet the band and try your hand at drumming or dancing. We hold regular beginners courses for both drummers and dancers and no previous experience of either is required.
Samba Tawe - Colourful, energetic and rhythmically magnificent!
