A friendly community Samba band playing all over Kent and the South East

Old School Samba is a friendly and enthusiastic samba band formed in 2014 and based near Maidstone at The Old School Hall, East Farleigh, Kent.


We practise Fridays from 7-9pm, but check our rehearsals page for the next session. Beginners are most welcome, and please do not feel intimidated, as no experience is necessary and all equipment is provided. The band has members from all over the south east, most of whom had never hit a drum in their lives before joining us.

We are an amazing group of very friendly people and would love to share the vibrant infectious sounds of Samba with you. Try just one session with us and you will be hooked !
