Samba Drummers

World Beat Samba Drummers are an excellent fit for anyone looking to hire carnival entertainers. It is a group of energetic carnival drummers. They fuse world rhythms with samba drumming to create fresh new carnival rhythms. Consequently, the cultures of Brazil, the Caribbean and, of course, Africa have heavily influenced their rhythms.

They performed at the 2019 Cricket World Cup Opening Ceremony. But even earlier than that they performed alongside the Black Eyed Peas at the UEFA Champions League Final in 2017. They’ve also played at the O2 Arena, Lovebox, Love Supreme and many more top festivals.

They are available in many set-ups and sizes, but they work best as a walkabout. To illustrate, they can parade between zones stopping to create a spectacle for their audiences. One way they do this is by creating drum and dance circles and getting everyone involved in their joyful rhythms! Just watch a selection of their samba drum performances here.

Steel Drummers for Carnival hire

PRN Steel Drummers consist of Solid Steel band members and their associates practicing what is called ‘Pan 'Roun' Neck’ in Caribbean carnivals. To clarify, they just strap on their steel pans or steel drums and 'chip' in time. 'Chipping' is a Trinidadian term for shuffling forward in time, by the way! In doing this they can deliver a great strolling steel band music in a parade.

They play calypso and soca-style music using other percussionists in the group as well. Other marching drum bands are really only able to produce rhythm. But with PRN Steel Drummers, you can choose the melodies they play yourself!

This group is very popular in community parades and at racecourses, football and cricket grounds. As a result, clients have booked them to play ‘Under The Sea’, ‘Get Lucky’, ‘Soul Limbo’ (the classic BBC Test Cricket Theme) and numerous football club anthems in the past. They are a taste of Notting Hill Carnival, for sure. Effectively, they guarantee a dynamic, exciting impact for any client looking to hire carnival entertainers.

Carnival Dancers

Masquerade Carnival Dancers bring the very spirit of Carnival to any event. Carnival culture is all about letting go of your real-life identity and assuming another one. This costumed dance group provides this mostly to events where the audience dresses in formal or casual attire. You can choose yourself the balance of differently sized costumes. Big costumes often include big headdresses, but the smallest costumes are skimpy and daringly expose quite a lot of flesh! You can even specify your gender preference for the individual performers. However, please don't expect us to say how many choices you have available to you!

These artists often perform very well to backing tracks at corporate events. However, they shine as carnival dancers parading to live carnival music when you hire carnival entertainers that play music too!
