Welcome to the Brisbane Samba School!
Sunday, 26 August 2007 10:00

Brisbane Samba School 'G.R.E.S. Unidos da Primavera' is Brisbane's first Samba School.

Founded in 2003, it quickly became one of Brisbane's most spectacular music groups, with up to 30 percussionists performing live at such landmark events as Gold Coast Indy, the Australia Day parade and the Queensland Multicultural Festival.

We are always looking for even more percussionists and want YOU to join us!

Percussion classes are held on a weekly basis and are open to everyone. No experience is necessary, and fun is guaranteed! Our goal is to have at least 100 drummers and dancers!

Fri 11 Mar 11 Performance at Casablanca

This Friday 11 March 2011 we had a fantastic performance at Casablanca bar in Caxton Street, Paddington. In the spirit of carnaval we had a 10+ strong bateria playing its heart out outside on Caxton street, after which we all went down into the bar and performed a number of famous Brazilian songs to the delight of a mixed Brazilian / Aussie audience. They loved it! And so did we.
