From the 2nd till the 20th of July, SMU Samba Masala travelled to Berlin, Coburg, Manchester & Liverpool for a performance tour around Europe. We took part in 2 main samba festivals; namely the annual International Samba Festival in Coburg, as well as the Brazilica Festival in Liverpool. Besides the 2 main festivals, we also attended workshops by reputable samba bands such as Bloco X, Terra Brasilis, and the Manchester Samba School. The 20 days of non-stop samba life really taught us a lot, and made us better musicians as well as performers. It was truly a surreal and heartening experience which we'll never forget!
