Katumba is Liverpool’s renowned drumming and movement groups with over 80 drummers-and counting. Katumba champions diversity and multiculturalism through our louder-than-loud music, movement and visuals.

After recently returning from performing at the world-famous Brazilian carnival, you can catch Katumba’s performances: Katumba Bloco, our community wall of sound and drummers; Katumba Show, smaller troupe with high impact choreography and intricate beats; or our brand new Katumba Drums n’ Brass, blending Brazilian and Caribbean sounds, complemented with Hip Hop, Big Beat and heaps of funk.

Founded by Musical Director Ritchie Tunstall (formerly of Batala Liverpool), and Brazilian Movement Director Juliana Landim, Katumba artfully fuses traditional Brazilian rhythms and modern beats, and high impact choreography all around.

We also work with dancers, fire artists, acrobats and everything in between to make your event an unforgettable one! An initiative with strong ethical and cultural identity that pushes the boundaries of music and performance, we bring communities together – increasing Health & Wellbeing while developing local, national and international connections. Katumba is part of the BrazUKa International family. Take part in the journey: Join us, Hire us, travel with us!!
