KATUMBA’s unique live band, KATUMBA DRUM ‘N’ BRASS blends the raw power of brass, deep sub bass and electronic beats with traditional samba bateria. The result is a carnivalesque cacophony of styles including hip hop, drum and bass, house and heaps of funk!
The band launched in 2017 at Liverpool’s Soundcity Festival, where they headlined alongside Metronomy, The Kooks and The Human League. They were joined with renowned pyrotechnic talent from Bring the Fire Project, Liverpool. Since then, they have played at numerous festivals, cultural events and club nights around Liverpool and the North West.
One of their tracks, Bolivars Merenge is an eclectic and enticing example of what the band describes as Tribal Latin House. The track is available to listen to on Soundcloud.
The unique live band are available to hire for weddings, private functions, carnivals, parties, award ceremonies and more across the UK. KATUMBA DRUM ‘n’ BRASS is also looking for more brass musicians to join their growing team.
