Join Bay Batucada

facebook_FWe're currently looking for enthusiastic people who want to join our Batacuda Brazilian drumming group.

Learn how to play Samba, Afoxe, Funk, Samba Reggae and other Brazilian rhythms with us - it's loads of fun.

If this sounds like something you or someone else you know would be interested in come along or tell them about our group.

Club instruments are available at no charge. Members are encouraged to consider purchasing their own instrument in due course. If you move on, or move to another instrument, we will normally buy your old instrument off you.

Ear Protection

Ear protection is a must for our workshops. Please remember to bring wear-on-the-head ones or ear inserts. We usually recommend inserts as the most convenient and these are also mandatory for gigs.
