Cardiff Encontro 2015

Around 400 drummers gathered over 3 days from all over the UK and beyond for samba workshops, busking gigs in Cardiff city centre and around the Cardiff Bay area and a spectacular evening showcase. All culminating in a mass busk outside the Senedd, The National Assembly for Wales building. Special thanks to Samba Galez for organising this great event.

Bloco Fogo were there in force with a band of 35 wowing the crowds wherever we went with our music, performance and choreography.

Playing both outside and inside the Revolución De Cuba Bar mixing with a mass of hen parties was great fun and had people on their feet dancing away with us. Check out their huge set of photos
Here is just a selection of photos that captured the weekend, plus some videos of the mass busk.
