We are excited to announce that the London School of Samba new Rainha da Bateria has been crowned. Last Wednesday 1 August, saw a packed house at Floripa as we watched five contestants samba for their lives. Congratulations to Nina Appio, who was the winner. Congrats also to Jordan in second place, Keon in third place and to Tamsin and Sylvia who also entered. We’re immensely proud of our girls. This is also the first time in LSS history that a winner of our Queen competition has also won the Queen Comp in Coburg, with the third place entrant also winning the same place in both competitions! Congratulations to both Nina and Keon once again.
