Our first, eponymously titled album was released in 1996. Back then, the band sported a slightly different name (see our About Us page for more on the name change!), but the same familiar vibe and energy.

Unfortunately, this CD is no longer available, but you can listen to all ten tracks right here.
 

In 2010, we organised our third massive Welsh Encontro, which culminated in an hour-long performance in the Coal Exchange by our good selves.

Here, we present a few short excerpts from that performance.

Look out for news of the next huge gathering of Samba players in May 2015, staged as part of our 25th Anniversary celebrations!
