BATERIA 61 //
Bateria 61 was formed by a group of friendly individuals who share a passion for samba. We’re on a mission to capture the unique and challenging swing of the carioca sound, and to share the fun with anyone who’s keen!
Our founding members have many years of experience playing in similar bands both in Sydney and abroad, including Sambalouco, Samba Frog, G.R.E.S. Alegria and Arrastão in Japan, and Samba Agogo in Wales.
SAMBA NINJA //
Ninjas that play samba.
WESTERN SYDNEY SAMBA //
Learn the vibrant, explosive & energetic rhythms that Rio Carnival is famous for, and meet some fabulous people in the Parramatta community in the process. The focus will be on Brazilian community & neighbourhood percussion, with a particular emphasis on Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo Carnival rhythms. We may also dabble in some other Brazilian regional styles such as samba-reggae, maculele, Afro, Afoxe and funk.
SaSamba is South Australia’s first community samba band, established to teach and showcase carnival and street music styles from Brazil and other parts of the world.
We perform regularly, often with one of Adelaide’s exciting samba dance troupes, and can add Brazilian flair to any function. We are always looking for new members – no experience necessary.
DJ PAULO //
DJ Paulo has performed at Playbar and Samba Encontro events in Sydney. He is a percussionist and has a passion for the mesmerising rhythms of Brazil. Paulo draws his inspiration from Afro-Brazilian and latin rhythms, as well as jazz, soul, funk, drum & bass, reggae and hip-hop. Rhythm is the key and DJ Paulo is always ready to get you moving. Enjoy the journey!
MARK CRISSY //
Mark Crissy has played extensively both at home and abroad. He has DJ’d regularly in London at the Jewel Bar Piccadilly Circus and Sunday Soul Session in East London, and in Brazil at Sunday Sessions São Paulo, hosted by Roger Weekes (former DJ with jamiroquai and Soul to Soul). Back home Mark started a group called Novasoul, doing Sunday sessions with live musicians and artists. He has also been a regular at Samba Encontro in Sydney. His main influences are funk, soul, latin and anything else with a groove that keeps his blood flowing and a kick in his step.
