On Sunday 15th July, drummers and a Director from drumming band Katumba are jumping on their bikes and cycling 25 miles as part of a crowdfunder campaign for a much-needed new van!
3 shows and a sponsored bike ride in 2 days - just another regular weekend for Katumba! Drummer Julia, who plays repinique in the band, tells us all about the performances, her first Brazilica carnival drumming experience, and why she loves being part of our tribe.
It’s always overwhelming to hear how our drumming positively affects so many different people. Jane’s story is one that truly encapsulates why it’s so important we keep doing what we’re doing. In an amazing effort to raise funds to repair our van, Jane came up with the idea of doing a sponsored cycle. Read more about why Jane is riding for Katumba below.
Katumba's school workshops are a fantastic way for pupils of all ages to learn a new skill, work as a team and build confidence.
