Due to the advice surrounding COVID19 and to minimise the spread of the virus through social distancing, the Sambanistas will be taking a break from Sunday drumming rehearsals until further notice. 

Additionally, we are reviewing our plans for the Samba Winter Retreat and will continue to monitor the advice over the next few weeks before we postpone or cancel this event. Please register your details here: for updates relating to the retreat.

We look forward to having some fun banging some drums again when we resume, so keep your eyes on our socials or subscribe here: for updates. 

Community Brazilian Style Drumming

The Sambanistas® were born at Artrage in September 1990 and now in 2020, we’re celebrating our 30th birthday!

We have a big year of celebrations planned and we would love it if you joined us to make it big, bold and full of drum beats!

Sign up here for our 30th Anniversary News and Events or follow us on Facebook or Instagram for updates.

Do you think you have a #drummerinside? Come along, give it a go and find out. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to have fun and not take it‚ or yourself‚ too seriously.

We rehearse most Sundays 12-2pm (check our calendar) in East Perth and contact us to let us know you’re coming and we will answer any questions you have.
