Govan Community Project is looking for new members to join the Community Samba Group.

The group meets weekly to practise the lively and energetic samba routines.

They have taken part in several events, such as performing in the Govan Parade and at a Diversity Festival.

Since joining the group, Maria has learned to play the drum and another instrument. She told us why she loves the band: “Personally for me the band is like a therapy, if you are tired or have some kind of problem then you forget and concentrate on the music. I really enjoy the human warmth of the group and their kindness.”

You don’t need any previous experience to join, as group leader Tina will be on hand to provide tuition. All the instruments are provided.

Tina said: “Samba is such fun, you can’t help but smile when you hear the band grooving. Just try it! All of the people in the band are so lovely. You’ll have fun and learn a new skill and make friends.”

The group meet on Monday at 18:00-19:00 at Clyde Community Hall, 41 Whitefield Road, Ibrox, G51 2YB.
