Royal Parks Half Marathon

We will be playing outside Buckingham Palace this Sunday for the Royal Parks Half Marathon in Aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital <3
Hope her maj is home and maybe she’ll pay us to stop playing outside her bedroom window and then GOSH will get lots of money. Either that or she’ll love it and give us a Royal wave. It’s win win really, isn’t it.

Probably the last chance you’ll get to see us before it gets too cold. Brrrrr…..

British Summertime Festival 2016 feat. Pharrell and Stevie Wonder

So yesterday we had the HUGE honour of playing at British Summertime Festival on the same bill as Pharrell, Corinne Bailey Rae and the legend that is Stevie Wonder. Audience figures reached 65000 people at their peak and the event was heaving all day. An extremely proud day for UDM, our members were true pros.

The beautiful Waterloo Carnival with Mandinga Arts! They never to fail to produce an amazing parade with a WHOLE PRIMARY SCHOOL. Yes, that’s right, the whole of Johanna Primary School with music provided by UDM winds it’s way through the streets of Waterloo before arriving at Waterloo Millenium Green for the big finale.

Cowley Road Carnival, Oxford

Cowley Road Carnival, Oxford

Cowley Road Carnival, Sun 6th July

Great (nearly)end to the best season yet! Huuuuuge crowds, lining the streets of East Oxford, for a full-on, powerful parade down the length of the Cowley Road, and a stage show to finish a perfect day. Well done and thankyou to all involved, I think ‘Sambalactica’ has well and truly flown to the stars and back and shared samba with the universe this year and during the immense journey of the last 10 years. Emotional doesn’t even begin to describe it.


But fret not, that ‘nearly’ means that there are 2 more chances to join the UDMSamba journey. Notting Hill Carnival Mon 28th August and Hackney Carnival  14th September both with Paraiso School of Samba – See you there!
