A bit about Liverpool Samba School:
Liverpool Samba School was created in 1995 by husband and wife creative team, Roger & Maeve Morris. Roger’s career as a professional percussionist spans the last 40 years and includes accolades such as performing with The Real Thing, Jools Holland and Novo Balanço. Maeve, his wife of 30 years, produces almost single-handedly all of the exquisite costumes worn by the drummers and fabulous dancers from the Liverpool Samba School. They have delivered and participated in over 900 events in Brazil, Amsterdam, Ireland, and the UK, and set up Liverpool Carnival Company to produce the wondrous yearly international samba festivals such as 2011’s 3 day event ‘Brazilica’.

About this blog:

News and Events from Liverpool Samba School, and related bits and bobs from the glittery, noisy, louco world of samba… originally brought to you by Lizinha who played percussion with the band for 8 years, with her sister Sorayacita… She emigrated to Los Angeles, California in 2010 so the site is now updated by members of Liverpool Samba School.

    I was at the Anthony Walker Foundation Gala Dinner last night, the 26th. at the Adelphi, and just wanted to say I really enjoyed your performance. It was the best of the night! Thank you for making it such a fantastic evening.
