Manchester’s Z-Arts hosts Adriano Adewale’s Catapluf’s Musical Journey, a musical adventure for children all the way from Brazil.

Explore rhythms and sounds of the world with Catapluf, whose imagination takes you to places where music can be found in everything: pans, water, drums, even the body. Catapluf’s Musical Journey includes samba, jazz, klezmer and plenty of audience participation.  The production is a live work, exploring music from around the world.

A new work by Adriano Adewale, Catapluf’s Musical Journey has been commissioned by the EFG London Jazz Festival and is aimed at children aged 5-7.  The show features Jenny Adejayan on cello, Marcelo Andrade and Giuliano Pereira both on saxophone, flute and guitar, Andres Ticino on percussion and Adriano Adewale on – saucepans and everything else.
