Catapluf’s Musical Journey

Find out when Catapluf’s Musical Journey is coming to your local venue…

Ages 5+ and their grown-ups

Running Time: 50 minutes

Presented By Adriano Adewale

Global grooves for children age 5+, all the way from Brazil!

Meet Catapluf, a cheeky character whose imagination travels to places where everything is music: saucepans, water, drums and even your body.

It’s a magical musical journey packed full of rhythms and tunes from every corner of the globe spiced up with samba sounds, roof-raising jazz and foot-stomping klezmer. Discover music hiding in the everyday things around us on a colourful journey of rhythms and sounds.

Originally commissioned by the EFG London Jazz Festival, Catapluf’s Musical Journey is a new work by multi-instrumentalist Adriano Adewale (Brazil/UK), aimed at children aged 5+.

The performance 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!

“The children came away from the performance dancing….they keep asking when they can see Adriano again. Captivated by the array of instruments and sounds, within minutes the children were involved…moving and responding to what they could see and hear.” – Sophie McLoughlin, Music Teacher, Latchmere Primary School
