Global Grooves and Band on the Wall present the incredible New Zealand samba reggae funk band followed by the Global Grooves DJs spinning it out loud until the early hours.
Batucada Sound Machine began in 2003 when five drummers met, once a month, in a dimly lit nightclub in Auckland, New Zealand, to experiment fusing Brazilian batucada rhythms with Pacific soul. Before long, a diverse group of talented musicians gravitated towards the infectious music and a band was formed. Since then, BSM has continued to experiment, not just with Brazilian, but also Cuban and Afro-beat rhythms, adding hip-hop, carefully crafted percussion, slick horns and soulful vocals.
Word of mouth soon spread about their blistering live performances and before long BSM were billed at numerous well-respected events including WOMAD (UK and NZ), the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and many of Australia’s biggest and most respected music and arts festivals. Catch this incredible band at this special Manchester concert and dance ya socks off into the early hours at what promises to be the summer party of the year.
TICKETS NOW ONLY AVAILABLE IN PERSON FROM THE BAND ON THE WALL BOX OFFICE. BOX OFFICE OPEN FROM 5PM
