Cowley Road Carnival

As 2016 marked 400 years since the death of Shakespeare, Sol Samba decided to commemorate this event by doing the Cowley Road Carnival as Midsamba Night’s Dream:


Our majestic maestre, the Donkey, led a group of Fairies and Athenians through the always entertaining Cowley Road, all the way behind St. Mary and John’s Church where we jammed with Ran Kan Kan and the Larkrise School of Samba, and finally ended our performance with a stage set in the Manzil Way Gardens.
