Afon Sistema

Afon Sistema

Bristol-based Carnival group Afon Sistema went down a storm leading the Sunday parade at Valley Fest last year and we’re thrilled to have them back again. Playing traditional rhythm of Maracatu from Recife, Brazil, complete with dancers, Afon Sistema are literally all singing all dancing! The group is run by local musicians Jackson Lapes and Jake Calvert who have been to Brazil several times to study and perform with groups in the Carnival. Overall winners of last year’s Bath Carnival parade Afon Sistema are really excited to be returning to the Valley to share their infectious Carnival grooves with you.
