Tamborim and Agogo Bells
I saw this band at our local carnival and boy did they pull a crowd – they were so energetic and everybody was bopping. I remember the act that was waiting to follow were getting ‘slightly’ agitated because no-one wanted Street Heat to stop. Encore after encore. I wanted a bit of that and as retirement was looming I decided to join this mad mix of folk.
I joined in 2008 and I’m still hitting a bell with a stick and getting the buzz from an enthusiastic crowd. Wearing fab costumes, face painted, and making a loud noise in public with a great group of people can only be done with a big smile on your face. Love it!
