Samba group launches in the Dales

A Samba group is launching in the Yorkshire Dales.

The launch comes after a Samba drumming workshop lead by Runaway Samba took place last month.

A course of successful flashmob performances were also held outside St Oswald’s Church Askrigg by Blueboxt – Community Arts and Music in Wensleydale which is now launching a permanent Samba group.

There will be four pilot sessions in July based at the Yorebridge Centre, Askrigg, followed by a break until September.

Organisers say that participants need a desire to get making great rhythm in a friendly group where everyone is learning, rather than musical talent.
