Calidoscopio Carnival Drummers are an energetic, fun and friendly drumming group who play Brazilian and Fusion grooves and are always welcoming new members.

Led by Ceri Howells our rehearsals focus on learning and practising new or existing material for gigs, workshops or even just for an individual’s own development. The group’s passion and energy for the music we play always reflects in our performances. We are open access so anyone can join no matter what age, experience or ability. It is also a great way to start your weekend!
