How is WASAMBA organised?

WASAMBA is a non-profit community-based organisation run by the group. Some members belong to a committee formed to make decisions when the group needs some firm direction. 

 

SAMBA is a Brazilian dance and musical genre originating in Bahia with its roots in Brazil (Rio De Janeiro) and Africa via the West African slave trade and African religious traditions.  It is recognized around the world as a symbol of Brazil and the Brazilian Carnival, hence we are known as” Wasamba Carnival Drummers”.

- Attend 4 out the last 6 rehearsals....

- Musically approved by MD
