Beat Wirks

We are a local community percussion band playing Brazilian rhythms generally from the north east of Brazil, mainly samba reggae, timbalada and maracatu influenced music. We do not have a regular schedule of practices, but we plan learning / practicing sessions with the goal of playing at specific events, such as carnivals, fetes and festivals. If you are interested in joining us please email or call to check when we are running a series of sessions. The band is orchestrated by Mestre Ian Foulds who has been playing Brazilian music for many years.

We’d love to meet you, no experience necessary, instruments are provided.


Please contact Ian Foulds to confirm meeting times and dates:
