Drum society seeks players

A newly formed drumming society is hoping to drum up something magical in the Harbour City.

The Batucada Society of Nanaimo, a recently formed society by veteran percussionist Randy Cormier, are aiming to form a percussion band known as a bateria. The band, which will be called the Ritmo Loco Band, will eventually go on to entertain audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest by performing Batucada, a sub-style of African influenced Brazilian samba.

On Saturday (April 5) at noon, the society will be holding an introductory meeting and demonstration of Batucada at Headliners School of Performing Arts, located on 2231 East McGarrigle Rd.

Those who are hoping to join this newly formed society must be over the age of 13. Prospective participants do not need to have any previous instruction and instruments will be provided by the society.

For additional information, please call Cormier at 250-751-9586.
