As Director of Juba do Leão and Jubacana, and an Artistic Director of Global Grooves, Holly Prest is a driving force behind the Afro-Brazilian Carnival scene in the UK.

Her passion for Pernambucan culture was sparked as a teenager in 1996, and ever since she has dedicated her studies and travels to developing links and projects within Maracatu, one of Brazil’s oldest traditional Carnival forms.

She is a leading percussion artist and instrument teacher based in the Northwest, and has developed a great number of training and performance opportunities for young people and adults alike.
