Raio de Sol - Canberra's Community Samba Band


The Canberra Community Samba Band is here!
No experience necessary!
Bring - a smile, a drum if you've got one, or just a wooden spoon and something to hit. Drums are supplied also!
1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month
at the Turner Scout Hall.

Gigs we've rocked:
Canberra WestBank Festival, National Multicultural Festival, Fringe Festival, ANU Food Coop Acoustic Soup Night, Venezuelan Embassy Christmas Party, Civic busks and plenty more...

We're inspired by the amazing Arco Iris Community Samba Band in Cambridge, England. Many of our tunes were written by the insanely good drummers over there - Blake Vickers, Laura Grimes, Emma Hanid, Marc Abraham, Ahu Gumrah Parry, Ivan Pedersen and many others... Thanks heaps Arco!
