I currently teach beginners classes for a samba drumming and dance group I also perform with (Ilu Axé). I have also helped to run drumming workshops for children at national festivals such as WOMAD. In addition to teaching and performing with Ilu Axé since 2008, I am the first point of contact for any external queries. I organise terms and dates of courses and collect payments from all members. As part of the teaching team, I work with the Musical Directors to decide on musical and dance content and discuss any issues. I have performed at many festivals throughout the country such as WOMAD, Boomtown, Shambala, St Paul's Carnival and Carnival Arts Encontro, as well as regular gigs in Bristol and the surrounding area.
