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.

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 5-7. Catapluf’s Musical Journey is 50 minutes long and can be performed at festivals, concert halls, or in schools.

The performance features Jenny Adejayan on cello, Marcelo Andrade and Giuliano Pereira both on saxophone, fluteand guitar, Andres Ticino on percussion and Adriano Adewale on – saucepans and everything else!

‘One of the best shows for children I’ve ever seen’ Lennart Strömbäck, Artistic Director, Umeå Jazz Festival

“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

  Music – Feel the beat! This is a music based performance


 Speech free – The storyline doesn’t rely on script or speech, communication through movement, music or light.
