KATUMBA is Liverpool’s colourful community drumming group with over 80 drummers and counting! Our vibrant performances range from a small energetic 8-piece to a massive roaming carnival guaranteed to blow any crowd away!

We are not your typical samba band; we also work with brass and electronics to push the experience further, fusing traditional samba bateria with drum and bass, hip hop, and heaps of funk!

With roots in Brazil and the UK, our authentic and unique blend of drums and dance has led us to perform at some of the biggest festivals around the globe including Africa Oyé, Brazilica, Amsterdam Carnival and Recife Carnival, Brazil.

We are passionate about working with the local community, and facilitate energiser and education workshops across the North West. Our band also performs at charity fundraisers and sporting events, drumming for Everton FC and Twickenham Rugby Sevens to name a few.
