The St. Andrew Society Pipes & Drums – or simply SASPD – founded in March 2009 by friends who wanted to play Scottish and martial music in a peaceful environment,with fun, transparency and camaraderie. It has an extremely solid base, with pipers, drummers and dancers who have experience and have participated in International Championships in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and in the World’s Pipe Band Championship in Scotland.
‘Increasingly the Brazilian public is appreciating this art more and more, which our ancestors left us as a legacy . The interest comes along with curiosity , creating a powerful link that helps spread our work and attract new talent ‘ – says Colin Pritchard, a Scot and Drum Major of the band. He is referring to, not just the performances of the Band, but the offer of Music lessons and Highland & Country dancing lessons to all those interested in learning a bit more about this art.
We are in our fourth year of life, but with a new group experienced and tuned. Come meet us to learn how a pipeband works and lives in the sunny land of samba and soccer.
