“SAMARA” is a five-piece jazz/Latin group led by the 606 Club's own "Guv'nor" Steve Rubie on sax and flute, and suffice it to say we all think the guys in the band are just great! The pianist Neil Angilley has worked the likes of Vanessa Mae, Maceo Parker and Roy Hargrove, Andy Lafone the bass player has worked with Snowboy and Da Lata, while Nic France the drummer has played with just about everyone, including Dave Gilmore (Pink Floyd) and Bill Withers. Vocalist Carolina Lelis relocated to the UK in 2019 from Brasil, where she had performed and recorded with Brasilian musicians Cuca Teixeira, Djalma Lima and Itamar Collaço (Zimbo Trio) among others. Most recently a member of the UK Brasilian Trio Sambossa she makes a delightful addition to the Samara lineup. The band’s Special Guest this evening will be the wonderful Brazilian percussionist Tuca Milan. A Brazilian expat Tuca is probably best known in London as a member of the all-women percussion group ‘Let Drum Beat’. One of the most exciting and creative of the Brazilian percussion players on the scene it’s with great pleasure that we welcome her as our Special Guest this evening. The music is an infectious blend of Brazilian Samba, Jazz and Latin, and everyone has a great time!
