Only a few days left til decision day, when we’ll chose the London School of Samba Queen of the Drums 2013-2014 at Floripa, Old Street.
The events kicks of at 9.20pm sharp and the competition will include a live performance from our Bateria and our Queens, past and present!


The Queen of the Drums, in Portuguese Rainha da Bateria, is one of the most important dance positions in a Samba School, and she is a source of inspiration for the drummers as they perform during carnival parades.


LSS choose our Rainha by a panel of experienced judges and by members vote.
On the night we’ll also be saying ‘Thank You’ and ‘Goodbye’ to our beautiful current Rainha, Yazzmin Newell (above), as her term as Queen comes to an end, but, once a Rainha always a Rainha!

It’s gonna be a blistering night of samba dancing, live drumming and our Queen show.

Come and support the contestants and vote for your new Queen!
