Kinetika Bloco

LONDON Southbank Centre / The Clore Ballroom
Belvedere Road


The Kinetika Bloco is a performance group with an exuberant mix of young brass and woodwind players, drummers, steel pan and dynamic dancers all in costume creating a 'unique new British Carnival sound with a decidedly London edge' (BBC Radio 2) – drawing from influences from the Caribbean, Brazil, West and Southern Africa, New Orleans jazz, Funk and Hip Hop. Their members create the work with a team of professional tutors and help to lead the organization.

They have in the past performed at Notting Hill Carnival, Bestival and EFG London Jazz Festival; headlined the Roundhouse; performed for Nelson Mandela; represented the UK at Beijing Olympic Festival; lead Team GB in the London 2012 Victory Parade; and collaborated with major artists like AfroReggae and Jerry Dammers at high profile venues including the Southbank Centre.
