"We were in serious need of some new music at our event. Everyone in our crew and our community were beyond blown away by Batala Manchester's dynamic drumming and larger than life sound. They are a friendly, professional and enthusiastic bunch who went the extra mile to fit right in with our event. We certainly look forward to having them back next year."
