West Lothian’s original samba band, SAMBALISTIC, were formed in 1999 following a workshop organised by West Lothian Councils Arts Unit. Since then, the band has grown from strength to strength and brings the exciting and captivating sounds of samba to any occasion. You’ll catch us livening up gala days, major sporting events and music festivals across Scotland
Where and when do you meet?
We practice every Thursday night during term time at Linlithgow Academy from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm. (under 16's should be accompanied by an adult). We get involved in various local gala days and other events throughout the year.
Why would I be interested in getting involved?
Next time you feel the Latin spirit take you – give Sambalistic a shout. We’re a friendly bunch of people, covering all abilities and ages. We offer coaching and instruction, and we even supply all the equipment and instruments. You don’t need any musical knowledge – just passion for the drums – and a little bit of rhythm! So all you need to bring to the party is your enthusiasm and sense of fun! We are always looking for new members, so if you feel like coming along email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or drop into our practice night on the first Thursday of the month. If you like it there is a one-off joining fee of £10 and an annual membership of only a £5 per year.
