Contact Details

The CARNIVAL BAND is a community music project with ten years of history, based out of Commercial Drive's Britannia Community Centre. With a floating membership of around 30 people playing brass, woodwinds, accordions, percussion and stringed instruments, their monstrous repertoire includes samba, calypso, swing, afrobeat, jazz, funk, disco and traditional music from around the globe. They've played around the globe including Shanghai and a spontaneous performance in London, England that lead to the internet phenomenon of "Traffic Wardens Need Love", based around a YouTube video of the Carnival Band serenading traffic wardens. Their music is grounded in both collaboration and empowerment to all involved.
