South London Samba

ArtForm: CityShowcase Act/Composer

South London Samba is an energetic drumming ensemble based in Peckham Rye. They are a mixture of young adults and teens who love to drum and although they use instruments associated with samba, they aren't confined to any style.

Adam Ouissellat (age 19) started the band in April 2013 with the goal of showing people what drums can really do. The band started off by rehearsing in Peckham Rye Park and since then they've performed at street parties, schools, festivals, shows and more. Most notably they've played at Crystal Palace Stadium, South Norwood Community Festival and The Afro Hair and Beauty Show!

Adam aims to start up adult and kids classes in Peckham and eventually branch out all over london. The band is currently working on a CD and hopes to have it ready for sale in August/September 2013.
