Kinetika Bloco is a performance group with an exuberant mix of musicians and dancers, creating a ‘unique new British Carnival sound with a decidedly London edge’ (BBC Radio 2).
Drawing influences from the Caribbean, Brazil, West and Southern Africa, as well as New Orleans jazz, funk and hip-hop, the Kinetika Bloco youth organisation create work with a team of professional tutors.
Hailing from the streets of London, and raised by its punk-jazz underbelly, Dat Brass are a high octane, 11-piece hip hop outfit who blend anthemic horn lines, lyrical verse, pounding percussion and razor sharp scratch.
Swing Patrol is a community of over 1,500 swing dancers, including a first-class teaching team, four award-winning performance troupes, a dedicated admin and volunteer team, and a passionate group of social dancers. Responsible for the overall vision and leadership of the Swing Patrol family is curator Scott Cupit.
