Duration: 50 mins

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!
