Picture a sweltering hot day, Red and black camouflage costumes, Samba drums and 100+ young people on foot surrounded by thousands of people and giant flat back trucks with massive speakers and you’ll be visualising Kinetika Bloco at the Notting Hill carnival.

The Bloco were definitely on a high. It was our first year at the Notting Hill Carnival and though the route was long, we made it through, playing our instruments and dancing the whole way!!  We partnered with Paddington Arts and Elimu for the Carnival coming under Kinetika’s theme of Roads to Freedom.

Hopefully, we will be making another apperance in 2011 at the biggest street party in Europe!

This time, I will think long and hard about playing a drum bigger than me!
