Pioneer! Kinetika Bloco Summer School Finale

It’s carnival time at Pioneer!, the flamboyant finale to youth performance company Kinetika Bloco’s summer school.

In this free event, Kinetika Bloco round off their ten-day summer school with a gala performance featuring around 150 musicians and dancers.

Young brass and woodwind players, drummers, steel pan players and dynamic dancers celebrate the pioneers past, present and future who have shaped the musical landscape in the UK.

They reference home-grown pioneers, who have made Kinetika Bloco and their sound what it is today, honour those who have gone before and blaze new musical trails.

Produced and performed by Kinetika Bloco, one of Southbank Centre’s Creative Learning Partners.

A performance company creating a unique new British carnival sound, Kinetika Bloco engages young people from south London in long-term creative activity, advancing their education, skills, and capacity for learning and leadership.
