Flaming Bongo’s! It’s the Samba-Blisstas! Thundering through the streets in their wild whacky costumes and riotous red rhythms, this silly syncopated street troupe will leave you sweaty and screaming for more! The Samba-Blisstas are a 20—45 piece street performance troupe led by Musical Director/ Team Builder Paul Barrett.
Modelled on South American samba rhythms with an Australian sense of larrikinism and choreographed movements , the troupe play surdo’s ( bass drums), go-go bells, cow bells, shakers, snare drums, tamborims, quika's and wobble boards!! The troupe is based in Bangalow NSW where Paul leads weekly rehearsals and performs regularly at local Festivals, corporate and community events. The Samba-Blisstas are loud, highly rhythmical and danceable. They perform in colourful, circus- style costumes and head-dresses. Recently at the 2007 Blues & Roots Festival in Byron Bay, a break away group ,still performing under The Samba-Blisstas but called ” The Bongo Team” , blew the crowd away with their High energy shows! They have recently recorded their first album “In Your Incus”. A great touch for your themed corporate entertainment.
