Some of the Kinetika Bloco Drummers were given the amazing opportunity to perform with the New York Musician, Dan Zanes, at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the Southbank for 8 shows to sold out audiences. The shows featured a choir made up of young children and the Soundbank Orchestra as well as Dan and his band of friends from the USA. 10 of the Bloco Drummers took part in a workshop with Senegalese drummer Mamadou Sarr and then performed with him, processing into the hall half way through the performance and coming on for the finale. It was a great opportunity for the Bloco to work together with other musicians in a professional environment and to hopefully help inspire the really young audience to learn to love music.
Dan Zanes commented:
The Kinetika Bloco takes the party into the stratosphere!
