PRACTICE IS ON (outdoors)
We've had some bad weather recently (smoke + rain) - but we don't have a indoors venue option anymore on Wednesdays -  so we are STILL OUTDOORS @ Questacon.

When we move to indoors in winter - we might have to change the day we practice to Monday's - however we're exploring other options - if you have a venue option please email us!


Multicultural Parade Rehearsal - SAT FEB 15th
This is happening this weekend - not too late to sign up. This is a specific practice for dancers for the Multicultural Festival - we'll be playing here for a one off samba parade workshop.
We’re running this gig as a parade from 3.45pm for 45mins to help Canberra’s samba dancers experience something close to street practices in Rio. Plus it’s a great MCF warmup. Meet no later than 3.20pm with your instruments and uniform at Subsdance dance studio in Kingston where we’ll walk a very short way to an alleyway and drum the afternoon away. Mardi Gras - B61 Rehearsal! - SAT FEB 29th
Tickets for Mardi Gras have sold! It’s a few weeks away so we’re busy doing leader training to support this gig.
In addition, B61 have invited us to their regular practice session coincidentally happening on the same day (Saturday 29/2 from 11-1pm in Sydney). Sign up TO THE DOODLE POLL if you can make it as we’ll let them know numbers ahead of time to make some space. BYO instrument. We’ll pick up some tips to be brought back to Raio. 
Parramasala Festival - SAT MARCH 13th
Let us know if you are/are not interested in joining Western Sydney Samba during the Parramasala festival parade in Sydney. With enough interest, we’ll organise a Raio trip. It went off last year and was fondly remembered as that gig with multiple impromptu Sydney train station sets. SIGN THE DOODLE POLL HERE!
