An evolving palette of smells, lights, smoke, rocket balloons and even a giant dancing lagoon creature are co-ordinated with an original and varying set of music that transports you to a faraway, fantastical place.

Let Drum Beat
Formed by Alba Cabral, Penny Elkins and Ursula Tuca Let Drum Beat is all about female percussionists that have gathered their vast set of percussion, joining their afro-latin-brazilian-european heritage to create their own pieces flavoured by a wide diversity of acoustic sounds that goes from tiny bells to heavy drums, energetic and paced rhythms, passing through vocal melodies and spontaneous dance.
This diverse collective of exceptional musicians from the North East creates one of the most distinctive sounds in the UK. An eclectic mix of tropical deep beats. From Afro Latin, Jazz, Cumbia, Cuban Beats to Afro Peruvian Festejo.
