MaSamba – the Band
MaSamba’s performing group specialises in both indoor shows and parades and has appeared at most of the most important events and venues in Ireland. We have also travelled to play in Liverpool and Cardiff and have toured Mexico and, of course, Brasil.
Festivals & Parades
MaSamba plays roughly 90 performances a year, mainly in Ireland. In that time, we have developed ongoing relationships with some of the country’s key festival events such as:
- St. Patrick’s Festival (Dublin)
- Drogheda Samba Festival
- Samhlaíocht Chiarrai (Tralee)
- Belfast Carnival
- Greystones Summer Arts Festival
- Ballina Street Festival
- Samhain Festival (Dublin)
- Lisburn Mayor’s Parade
- The Ballymoney Mayor’s Parade
MaSamba are no strangers to indoor club performances either. In recent times we have played the Gaiety, the Olympia, the Village, Vicar Street, Crawdaddy (the Pod), the Sugar Club, TF Theatre (Castlebar), the Academy (Dublin) TramCo. (Dublin), 10 (Waterford), Passion (Carrick-on-Shannon), Trinity Rooms (Limerick), Radisson Hotel (Galway), to name but a few.
We have also made numerous appearances on television including ‘the Late Late Show’, ‘Saturday Night Live’, ‘Live at Three’, ‘Ireland AM’, ‘Sattitude’, etc.
Joining the Band
While we insist on the highest performance standards, maSamba Samba School is a community music group and is open to all.
