FEEL THE JOY, LET'S DRUM!
Batala Philly is an all-percussion, community band that plays Samba Reggae music from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. As part of the larger Batala Mundo global arts project, we also play with other Batala bands in the U.S. and around the world. As of May 2021, Batala Philly is the only existing Batala approved band in Philadelphia. Our distinctive sound provides energy and the urge to dance like nothing else.
Batala Philly is an open community band that takes members with all levels of experience! Whether you are a professional drummer or have no musical experience, you’re welcome to check us out!
