A Community Band Based in Mid Wales


Samba Agogo in CardiffSamba Agogo is a community group based in Aberystwyth, Wales.

The band is made up of up to 20 folk, aged from 15 to …quite a bit older. 😉

We adopt a variety of styles from classic Samba Rhythms to original pieces with influences from African Rhythms, Drum and Bass to Bhangra. We meet for weekly practice sessions and perform regularly throughout the year.

We don’t just perform at carnivals – we have also performed at Christmas work parties, Latin nights in various clubs and are regulars at Aberystwyth’s many events. We play mostly in Wales, but have made it as far as Preston and Bristol in the past.

If you would like to book us for an event or are an experienced Samba Drummer and would like to join us, please use the contact page to get in touch with us.
