The London School of Samba recently performed for the third time with indie group, Bombay Bicycle Club, with their song ‘Always like this’ at the the Underage Festival in Victoria Park, in addition to the fantastic performance at Glastonbury in 2010 and their 2010 show at Koko with the group. This time saw the song ‘Always like this’ with additional horn section, featuring our own Yazzmin Newell. Mestre Fred said of the gig ‘It’s a great honour to play with these guys not once, but three times. And of course helps put us out there in as many collaborations and forms as possible. We’re taking the world by storm, one indie group at a time!’

London School of Samba & Bombay Bicycle Club “Always Like This” Live!

We didn’t mange to get a good video of the performance, but we found this video on youtube. Sorry for the quality of the video, but the person filming was very excited about this gig and jumping around!

Underage Festival for 13 to 17 year olds

The one-day festival took place at Victoria Park on 5 August 2011, and is only for 13 to 17-year-olds.  The festival, in its fifth year, will feature loads of bands including the Bombay Bicycle Club and many more such as Janelle Monae, Labrinth, Devlin, Giggs, Maverick Sabre, Yasmin, Roll Deep, Fugative and Frankie & The Heartstrings.  This festival was a fun gig for the London School of Samba who joined the Bombay Bicycle Club for their classic song, “Always like this.”
