South London Samba

We are South London Samba, a collective of young people who love to drum. We play energetic music inspired by Latin, Caribbean and African rhythms, blended together with our South London vibe.

We've performed with the Black Eyed Peas (UEFA Champions League Final 2017), Cricket World Cup Opening Ceremony 2019, Eastenders BBC Children In Need, Crystal Palace FC, Lovebox Festival, Love Supreme, O2 Arena, Virgo Festival and Notting Hill Carnival (to name a few). We're currently rehearsing and running classes at The Midi Music Company in Deptford.

We are launching our first ever Youth Band!


From 29th July - 9th August we will be partnering with Margaret's Music Ltd to provide FREE drumming classes at The Green community centre in Nunhead for aspiring musicians aged 10-17.

Everyone is welcome, whether you've played for years or have never touched a drum!

Classes will be from 4-5:30pm on the following dates:

Monday 29th July
Tuesday 30th July
Wednesday 31st July
Monday 5th August
Tuesday 6th August
Wednesday 7th August
Friday 9th August (4-6:30pm)

During the classes the band will learn three drumming pieces and develop their rhythmic skills.

On Friday 9th they will take to the streets in their SLS t-shirts* to perform the pieces they have learned. The first performance will be on Nunhead Green, then they will head to Peckham Rye Park to do a final show!

*A voluntary donation of £10 is asked for to cover the cost of band t-shirts

Can't make it? Don't worry, we will be starting (FREE!) weekly classes very soon. For more information send us an email at or call Adam on 07507445952
