One of Southbank Centre's Creative Learning Partners, Kinetika Bloco are a young performance group of brass and woodwind players, drummers and dynamic dancers. As well as creating what’s been described as a ‘unique new British Carnival sound with a decidedly London edge’ they use music, dance, design and more to enable young people to express themselves creatively, develop social skills and take a lead – both in the band and in their own lives.
"As you can imagine, we’re really proud of our partnership with Kinetika Bloco, and their annual summer school which brings around 150 young people to the Southbank Centre is one of the highlights of our year. For now though, we asked the young people of Kinetika Bloco what they’ve been enjoying doing during lockdown..."
Everything we do at Kinetika Bloco is normally loud, large, and involves lots of contact. So the current lockdown has been an interesting challenge for us to navigate. However, we’re working hard to continue supporting young people at this time, by providing opportunities for them to gather socially online, and continue to develop their music, dance and leadership skills. We want them to emerge from lockdown connected, empowered, resilient and ready to get on with life.
