Verified profile

South London Samba is a collective of energetic carnival drummers who blend world rhythms with their fresh South London vibe. They are heavily influenced by the rhythmic culture from South America, the Caribbean and Africa. Adam Ouissellat (Band Leader) formed the band in 2013 with friends from school, after buying some used drums on Ebay. They first began rehearsing in Peckham Rye Park on weekend afternoons and started getting gigs in the local area. Since 2014 SLS have been rehearsing and running weekly classes at The Midi Music Company in Deptford. South London Samba has performed as part of the 2019 Cricket World Cup Opening Ceremony, with the Black Eyed Peas (UEFA Champions League Final 2017), O2 Arena, Lovebox, Love Supreme, Elrow Town, We Out Here, X The Tracks and many more.
