Hot on the heels of our ‘New Beats from Dublin’ show at the weekend, we just received this amazing mix from our partner in crime from the Hip-Hop scene, DJ Moschops.
We’ve known Moschops for years through his work with Working Class Records and Hip Nós, amongst many others, and when we wanted a sick mix of our track ‘Funny Funk‘, he was the first name on the… Read More
‘New Beats from Dublin’ refers to our work with singer Andrea Nicole, a project which culminated with a great show in the Workman’s Club last Saturday, September 28th.
Several months back, Andrea approached us to see if we would be interested in collaborating with her on a percussion mix of her single ‘Need… Read More
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
Last week, we concluded our annual Summer Drumming Camp, with young people from our local area of the Liberties, Dublin. This year, we decided to focus all the action over two weeks, as we find that the further into the Summer we get, the harder it is to keep a group going. This year, we had the added ‘problem’ of amazingly fine weather, which makes kids more likely to want… Read More
We are delighted to announce the return of our highly-successful ‘Summer Drumming’ summer camp for children aged between 9 and 14 years of age.
The camp takes place over the first two weeks of July, with an anticipated performance at the Liberties Festival some time between July 17th and 21st.

Point of Clarification: The Liberties Percussion Orchestra show tomorrow (June 21st) as part of LoveLiveMusic in NOT ticketed. I’m not sure how that got on the website, and we can’t get back in to change it. Anyway, the show is open to all, so come along if you want to hear the powerful beat of the Liberties!

It has to be said that the vast majority of our clients are an absolute pleasure to deal with, and once communications are clear, everything runs smoothly, and everyone’s happy.
However, sometimes we find that a client will think that it’s OK not to pay us for months, or sometimes doesn’t want to pay at all for our services. Maybe, they think that drummers and dancers don’t need to… Read More
Just yesterday, we received the final draft of a cool little video clip produced by Simply Zesty, a Dublin-based digital agency.
The focus of the clip is membership of MaSamba, and what it means for different people in the band, and got us thinking about the social nature of groups like MaSamba and that many people have developed long friendships and networks through membership of the group. In the… 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
