Kinetika Bloco 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 Radio2). We draw our influences from the Caribbean, Brazil, West and Southern Africa, New Orleans jazz, Funk and Hip Hop. Our members create the work with a team of professional tutors and help to lead the organisation.
Kinetika Bloco was established as a charity in June 2010, but has been in existence since 2000 when it was first established as a project within Kinetika Art Links International. In 2016 we became a Youth Company in Residence in Southbank Centre.
