Where and when we meet

Arcoiris (the Portugese for rainbow) is a carnival band from Cambridge (UK), playing principally Brazilian and Cuban carnival ryhthms.

Currently we meet at 7:30 on WEDNESDAYS at the Bathhouse, Mill Road. (Note we have changed from Tuesdays to Wednesdays, and at a slightly earlier time now)

Sessions last two and a quarter hours, with a 15 minute break for annoucements, discussion etc.

Who can join?

Anyone is welcome to come along and join in. We are hoping to set up a split session, with time for newcomers at the beginning, soon.
