I’ve had a nice email from Sam about Bloco Louco, which I’ll let him tell you about:
Bloco Louco is a samba band/community making some awesome music – arguably some of the best unamplified beats in the city. We were started with Lottery funding, and since that happened a year and a half ago we have gone from strength to strength. Now we are in a position to more than double our numbers, from about 10 currently to a veritable army of 30 drummers.
We rehearse every week at the Ladywood Arts Centre, B16 8TR
7:15pm – 9:45pm every Tuesday
Check out http://www.blocolouco.com/ for more info.
Also to launch this new growth phase, we will be playing 4 SETS at the Birmingham ArtsFest. This will be an amazing extravaganza of talent – among other things there will be a world record attempt during DholFest, so be there!
