The Sambanistas are Perth's original Brazilian-style percussion group, celebrating 32 years in 2022!
The Sambanistas are a group of ordinary folk who get together each week to bang drums, make beautiful music, and have a heap of fun in the process.
Whether energising participants in one of Perth’s many charity runs, parading through Northbridge to the cheer of thousands, decked out in face paints and lights; or simply rehearsing at HQ in East Perth, fun is what it’s all about.
Some of the gigs they have played at in the past include the Fairbridge Festival, various parties at Little Creatures, major fundraisers at Burswood, and international conferences at the Perth Convention Centre. They have travelled to Cue, Kalgoorlie, Wagin, Mandurah, Dongara, Esperance and many other locations. You will see them drumming & parading in all the best community festivals that happen each year, Freo Arts Festival, Pride Parade, the Christmas Pageant, the Joondalup Festival and more!
They can partner with Samba dancers for the ultimate party!
