See a show stopping dusk drumming performance from Samba Reggae drumming band Batala Mersey on the newly opened steps of the Museum of Liverpool at the Pier Head.

The story of three Brazilian Orishas will form the basis of three short ritualistic percussive routines, representing the human form of their Candomble spirit in the Yoruba identity. Each twenty minute performance has been designed to allude to the ritualistic rhythms and moves of the particular Orisha it represents, bringing about a unique mood and spiritual feel to each of the individual performances.

Bring family and friends to watch live Samba Reggae music performed by over 30 drummers wearing traditional costume, and reflect on and pay homage to the spiritual significance of its Afro-Brazilian roots.
