Batacuda are a group of percussionists creating foot-tapping, hip-swivelling rhythms and entertainment. They're a high energy, cross-cultural medley of percussion, circus skills and mayhem.
A vibrant and colourful five-person troupe, Batacuda play rhythms from all over the globe. They are totally mobile, making them free to rove amongst the audience, encouraging participation along the way. They will use anything as instruments: bicycles, rubbish bins, prams, trucks, coffee cups and sculptures - whatever makes a sound! Then there are their circus tricks - pram balancing, shoe juggling, umbrella manipulation - just to name a few!
The show itself is a spectacular event that includes musical gymnastics, comedy, drumming solos, physical contortion and fire juggling, all involving the audience en masse.
Batacuda's performance highlights include such well-known festivals as the Melbourne International Festival of the Arts, the Columbia International Theatre Festival and the Hong Kong Fringe Arts Festival.
In addition, Batacuda have performed at hundreds of entertainment industry events and music events alike.
