George Square was filled with the sound of a Brazilian carnival as school children from across Glasgow took part in Samba in the Square.
The project started by CREATE (Creativity and Expressive Arts Transforming Education) and Samba Ya Bamba brought together samba drummers from five primary schools and brass and wind players from secondary schools.
Roddy Dickson, from Samba Ya Bamba said: “This is the first time that we’ve brought some of them together to perform and they did great.
“In Brazil it’s a social thing. It’s all about the people who make the music as much as the music itself.”
Liz Cameron, executive member for Children and Young People said: “The children were fantastic and they brought a smile to everyone who was treated to their carnival sounds.”
