Notting Hill Carnival!

Wow, bit of long time since I last posted – too damn busy innit!

But this is a fun update of some video taken of the two bands I played with over the weekend at Notting Hill Carnival.

Too many tales to tell of rain, sun, a wicked gig at Guanabara Saturday night, 6 hours of maracatu on Sunday, 4 hours of samba-reggae on Monday, playing a tribute to London School of Samba on Sunday, being re-united with good friends, playing with guests from Brazil, France, Australia, Edinburgh, Ireland, etc, etc. Jerk chicken.

In short, a life affirming weekend.

Here’s some short clips of video for an impression of some of the drumming action. The first 30 seconds is maracatu, the rest samba reggae.
