I’m sure lots of people, particularly teachers, are complaining that all the schools have re-commenced in the last couple of weeks, but not us – we’re delighted to be back into the thick of things!
As an organisation that delivers hundreds of percussion workshops every year, the slow down in the Summer goes on a little too long! This week, we started back in Marino College, with the drumming… Read More
Another school year starts, and with it, another opportunity to develop some samba skills, with our top drumming tutors.
Each year deliver an eight-week basic foundation in samba drumming, covering most of the key instruments, and developing a number of different pieces of music in some of the most popular styles of Afro-Brasilian percussion.
Ideal for complete beginners or improvers, some people use it as a way of… Read More
This afternoon (Saturday 20th July)), we are providing a free samba workshop for adults as part of the Liberties Festival 2013.
The session runs from 12pm – 2pm, or whenever we get too hot, all instruments are provided, and no experience is necessary. Best of all it’s FREE, but we would ask that you book in advance, either on 087-2363813 or email@example.com… Read More
With the Easter break but a fleeting memory, we are back in workshop mode in a big way!
Last week, we began work on two new projects with old friends. Sarah has been invited back to George’s Hill National School, to deliver a series of 24 workshops with some of the younger children there – we have had some great successes in George’s Hill, and it is very much… Read More
St. Patrick’s Day is always an important time in the MaSamba camp, and this year is no exception!
This year, as always, we are involved in a whole series of events, some big, some small, some very public, some almost invisible, some for the world to see, and some that might only mean something to band members and friends – variety, as they say, is the spice of life!… Read More
No, this is not the government trying to distract us from yet another tax-hike, The Octopus is the name of a new street theatre presentation currently being developed by Samba Resille, in preparation for their Irish tour in June 2013.
Samba Resille are one of the most established Afro-Brasilian music and dance groups in France… Read More
We are delighted to announce our next Samba Percussion Evening Course, which will run for 8 weeks from mid October. Dates to be announced very soon!

All the material we are covering is from MaSamba’s current set, wich will facilitate students… Read More
As the dust settles on a really busy period of work for the band, it is time to sort out the mess, evaluate and move on, into the 2nd half of the year.
Last week, in the midst of a snowstorm of work, we received one very special piece of mail, bearing the gold Irish Harp. We are all used to seeing the harp on government literature, but we had never seen a gold one – what did it signify?
It was the most amazing news, in the Michael D. Higgins, President Of Ireland has agreed to be the Patron for MaSamba… Read More
Today, we finished up our annual project with the boys of Scoil Iosagain in Crumlin, with a series of five unique performances, by five totally unique samba bands. All of them played really well, and the response from the audience of parents, peers and teachers was justifiably positive!
As soon as the drums were back at base, we had a quick staff meeting to review our plans for next… Read More
