Celebrate International Women’s Day with Paraiso!

9 03 2010

Some of you may know I’m part of the Paraiso School of Samba, London’s most authentic Brazilian Rio-style samba school.

(Here’s a picture of me and my fellow sambistas playing the part last Christmas:)

This year we’re celebrating International Women’s Day with the Lambeth Council presenting an all-female bateria (drum ensemble). We’ll be resurrecting the spirit of Rio’s carnival, only just laid to rest a couple of weeks ago,and bringing the party to the streets of Brixton. There’s no doubt we’re gonna be making the loudest sound there with our drums!

Here’s a little snippet from the Lambeth Council Website to give you an idea of what else you can get up to:

We have a range of activities on offer including free therapies, demonstrations, children’s corner, fashion and jewellery, sewing, employment, education and financial advice, dance and poetry and much, much more.

Motivational seminars
You can also attend one of three motivational seminars offering practical tips on:

  • ‘How to reorder your life’
  • ‘Feel the fear – do it anyway’
  • ‘How to make your money matter’.

Come and show your support, have a little boogie, and check out all the other activities going down at the Lambeth Town Hall this Saturday 13 March from midday til 4pm.
