Haylestorm Samba is an enthusiastic community samba band currently based just outside Camborne in the village of Kehelland.
Haylestorm, as its name suggests, was first formed in Hayle some 6 miles down the road, but early this century we moved to Redruth, where we remained until recently.
We have had many different mestres (Directors) over the years, and all have injected their own style and love of Brazilian percussion music.
We play not only traditional Brazilian samba rhythms like Batucada and Samba Reggae grooves, but also rhythms from all over the world like Mozambique, Afoxe and some more Western inspired funkiness.
Here's a clip of us performing at Perranporth Carnival 2017
