Blyth Valley Samba School

Blyth Valley Samba Band at Blyth Community Carnival 2017

Blyth Valley Samba School provides regular performances and workshops to give people the opportunity to sample team community drumming and to learn something of the different styles of ethnic percussion from around the world, to share, and enjoy and provide understanding of world musical culture.
