We are Recruiting!
We are very excited to announce that our next course for beginners will start on Weds 13th Feb 2019 (amended from Weds 6th Feb due to circumstances beyond our control).
This is following an extremely successful beginners’ course earlier this year where our ‘graduates’ have been enjoying gigging as part of the main band since the start of the bonfire season.
There will be four FREE trial sessions during which time you will be taught the basics of samba from scratch by our team of Mestres (musical leaders). You will then be invited to join us where you will be integrated into the main band.
Bloco Fogo is one of the biggest and most versatile samba bands
in Kent and the South East.
We are available for gigs, parties, corporate events and school workshops across Kent, the UK and Europe, to entertain you with our vibrant Brazilian carnival drumming and colourful costumes.
Take a look at our blog to see some of the events we have enjoyed drumming at this past year.
Gig bookings in UK and Europe
For a community band, we have travelled far and wide to perform at all sorts of gigs and events across the UK, from summer fêtes in Surrey and bonfire parades in Sussex to the Thames Festival and the Lord Mayor’s Show in London, and even further afield to Cleethorpes Carnival, Jersey, Ireland, Germany and Nijmegen in Holland.
