This event was featured in our 2015 program.



Formed in 2008, Chicada is an 18 piece community-based Samba band, and the first of its kind in Tasmania.

Bringing exciting rhythms, flavours and the drumming ‘bateria’ sounds from Brazil to Launceston, Chicada transports audience to the vibrant street sounds of Brazilian Carnival.

Bring your headdresses and dancing shoes, and expect a wild time!

Catch Chicada at our Opening Night fanfare!
