The drum singers
International Samba Reggae Percussion
Batala Manchester is part of a global samba reggae movement, created by Giba Goncalves in 1997. Our primary objective is to bring the carnival culture, of Salvador Brazil, to the streets of the world.
"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"
