Falmouth & Penryn's own loud and funky Afro-Brazilian drum and dance group (or Samba band by another name!). We play a multitude of styles from all over Brazil, including Samba, Samba Reggae, Maracatu and more. Our aim is to interpret the vast array of Brazilian percussion and dance repertoire in an authentic way yet respectful  to the traditions they are from.


 We hold regular weekly sessions/classes in percussion & Dance (Tuesday nights at the AMATA building, University Falmouth, Penryn Campus). Sessions are led by Robin (Drums) and Anna (Dance).


Dakadoum offers workshops and regular classes in schools and the community. For more info please go to the Workshops page
