The Ireland Drummers would like to present Maracatu Ilha Brilho (Eel-ya Breel-yo). This is a traditional music project involving three cities from around Ireland. Kilkenn’s Jacare Samba group, Sligo’s Samboeire and Belfast’s Beatndrum have delved into old traditional northeastern brasilian rhythm and song.
We are aiming to hold the two-day workshop most likely between 12 - 14 August. Please register your interest and preferred time of day now, as places are limited to 15. Cost will be £20 per day. For further information and to register your interest, please contact Flora on 07903 960997 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Carnival event will not be happening at City Hall on Saturday. Instead, the Parade will start at Writers' Square. There will be carnival music performances from 1.30pm. The Parade will set off at 2.00pm from Donegall Street to Royal Avenue.
