Kinetika Bloco aims to embody and promote a positive representation of youth in London.
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).
Influenced by the Caribbean, Brazil, West and Southern Africa, New Orleans jazz, Funk and Hip Hop, the Kinetika Bloco members create the work with a team of professional tutors and help to lead the organization. Their mission is to get young people from South London engaged in long term creative activity advancing their education, skills, and capacity.
Through the music, dance, design and leadership activities they enable young people to have creative engagement, determine company policy and direction and to follow pathways for leadership and career development and participate in society as mature and responsible individuals.
Kinetika Bloco has an outstanding track record in musical progression, developing a consistent and proven talent pathway for young artists which empowers them to develop creatively and take a lead within Bloco and the wider sector. Kinetika Bloco aims to embody and promote a positive representation of youth in London.
Kinetika Bloco has been a partner at Yellow Qube since 2017 running an After School club on Thursdays in term time for young people in Tulse Hill to learn drumming, dance, steel pans and brass and woodwind instruments.
