“I absolutely love it! I love being part of a group of people making music. I have always loved music from a very young age and it has always played a big part in my life, but as I have got older and particularly since I have had children it has been much harder to find opportunities to be involved in music and creative activities. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to be part of Hull Samba and to have had access to the brilliant teaching offered”

“After performing at the Welly I felt absolutely elated. It was a great thing to be part of musically, it gave me such a big boost to my self confidence and to my whole life in general. It feels great to play music that seems to have such a positive appeal to a wide range of people.”

“It has allowed me to meet really lovely people, to build up my self confidence, to be creative and to find part of myself I thought I would never find again.”

Great energy in their playing also, enticing a dance into everyone’s step!”
