A musical event in March took people from Cuban song to Samba with hands on drumming.
This year’s free family learning charity event, organised by the Fenland Music Centre Association and funded by the March Educational Foundation, saw percussion expert Anthony Paul take enthusiastic members of the local community on a journey of Latin American fun.
Authentic instruments echoed throughout an evening of Samba rhythms and styles.
A spokesperson for the FMCA said: “Anthony’s rhythmic workshops are admired up and down the country.
“His inclusive approach enables novices both young and old to partake equally, in totally new musical experiences without any fear of pressure or embarrassment.
