Hi All, hope you've had a great long weekend and are pumped for drumming later this week!

'Unlocking Rio Samba' - Wrap-up

A big thank you needs to go to Rob Acari for coming to Canberra and helping those who came to the recent unlocking Rio Samba workshops to really up their skills. There were some great Caixa and Tam technique tutorials on the Friday night and then a monster 6 hr Samba intensive workshop on the Saturday.

Those who went now have way more understanding and practice to sharpen the basics and also a couple of new bossas and alternative section options to show others. Thanks also needs to go to Mitch for sorting out much of the Canberra end of organising the event and for putting Rob up over the weekend. 

Our next gig: Pachanga!

Raio's next gig is on 4 June at The Basement in Belconnen. This promises to be a very fun night, we will be playing alongside Funkytrop and the Chicharrita Club in what is a great live venue. Our passista dance friends are also very welcome so if you know Samba dancers wanting to strut their stuff to live drums invite them along. 
Sign up at this link to register your interest to either drum or dance:

If you want to invite mates along to watch they can find out more details and buy tickets to the events here:

Raio Practice Days

In case you haven't been to practice in the last few weeks, then to update you we are now practicing at St Ninians on alternating Monday and Wednesday nights. This week practice is on Wednesday (28 April). The time remains unchanged - we will be there from 6:30-8:30pm. 

We will be working on a new integrated set for Pachanga! as well as building what we have learned at recent workshops into our repertoire so make sure you come along to the next few practices to be in the know!

Long term memberships

Sick of paying subs each week? Pay $100 to the Raio account to have your subs covered for 6 months (this is a discount on normal rates)!!

If you dont have the Raio bank account details ask someone for them at practice. 

Raio Shirts and Hoodies

We’ve recently done an order for 20 Raio Shirts in various sizes so if you are keen for a shirt let one of your friendly committee members know and we’ll see if we can sort you out! Cost is $30 a shirt.

We are thinking of doing a hoodie order too so let us know if you would want one of these.
