Outdoor performance Kinetika Bloco

Show time: Sunday 2 September

Kinetika Bloco is a performance group with an exuberant mix of young brass and woodwind players, drummers, steel pan and dynamic dancers all in costume creating a “unique new British Carnival sound with a decidedly London edge” (BBC Radio 2). They draw their influences from the Caribbean, Brazil, West and Southern Africa, New Orleans jazz, Funk and Hip Hop. The members create the work with a team of professional tutors and help to lead the organization. Their achievements include: performing at the Opening Ceremony for CHOGM at Buckingham Palace, performances at Notting Hill Carnival, Bestival and EFG London Jazz Festival; headlining the Roundhouse and performing for Nelson Mandela.
