Experience the explosive energy of Cork City Samba Band and their troupe of 16 percussion players.

Funky hip-hop, high tempo drum ‘n’ bass and bouncing house rhythms form part of a jam-packed fast-moving set, along with ‘Rio-style’ samba reggae grooves and African influenced north Brazilian beats like Maracatu and Afro-bloc.

The band went down a storm at The Great Beyond Festival in Kinsale last summer and have previously played several festivals including Townlands Carnival, Cork Jazz Festival, Cork Opera House as well as playing at one of Europe's biggest samba festivals, Brazilica, in the UK.
