We're still reeling from our incredible band tour to Glasgow for the Encontro Street Band Festival! Hosted by Oi Musica and SambaYaBamba, this colourful celebration of street and carnival music sees over 25 UK and international groups take over Glasgow’s Merchant City with a spectacular mass of drumming, brass, percussion and dance. Drummer Jen tells us all about her experience of the festival as part of a drumming band, and why she'll be going back next year! #glasgowencontro #streetbandfestival #drummingband

It’s always overwhelming to hear how our drumming positively affects so many different people. Rebecca's story is one of many that shows how being part of the Katumba community can boost confidence and encourage positive health and wellbeing. In an amazing effort to raise funds to repair our van, Rebecca decided to lead a sponsored hike. Read more about why Rebecca is climbing for Katumba - and how to donate below. #drummingband #katumba #snowdon #fillyaboots #katumbavanfund #climbforkatumba #gofundme
