Become a Batala Drummer
How does it work?
Batala Manchester is a newly formed band. We are one of 9 Batala bands in the UK, and one of nearly 50 bands worldwide. We will take on new players through "taster sessions" and "beginner courses" once or twice a year.
Our intake for new players is currently by invitation only
I want to join - How do I sign up?
Following a successful launch gig and two full taster sessions, we have now begun the process of band training and selection. If you are desperate to join us you should add yourself to our "Bee hive" waiting list group on Facebook. You will then be contacted at the next available opportunity should we find we have available spaces. This group will also keep you informed of the next taster sessions or new player's school for the 2024 season.
