Bem Vindo! Welcome to Arco Iris, Cambridge's Community Samba Band.
May 2021 update: we're returning to band practice from Wednesday 19th May! We've arranged to visit various venues in the Mill Road and wider Cambridge area that will enable us to meet social distancing guidance. Places are limited and bookable via a form, the link to which has been sent to those on our mailing list.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page and this website for further updates regarding our return to drumming as national restrictions are lifted.
We play the hottest (and loudest!) of Brazilian carnival rhythms. As a community samba band, all are welcome to join. We practise at the Bath House on Mill Road, Cambridge at 19:30 every Wednesday. The first session is free, so come along! More details.
Looking to book us? Our performances range from glittering carnival parades and storming club appearances to local charity events, private parties and music festivals. Our repertoire includes a range of different pieces, from traditional Brazilian and Cuban rhythms to original pieces written by our members. You'll hear everything from funk to reggae and everything in between. Book us
