Town’s first samba band
THE creation of Clevedon’s first samba band looks set to be a success after a taster session attracted many new people keen to learn about the music.
Held at the music shop in Alexandra Road, participants learnt to play basic rhythms before moving on to full samba music.
From this month, experienced samba musician John Richards plans to hold regular Tuesday evening sessions at Clevedon School in the hope of creating the town’s first samba band.
Speaking about the successful taster session, Liz Tedbury at Clevedon Music Shop said: “You could hear the drums and music up the street.
“It was absolutely brilliant. Samba seems to be something that people do just once and then fall in love with it.”
