Batala Lancaster is a samba reggae drumming band, formed in 2004, and part of an international group of bands called Batala Mundo.

We rehearse at Ellel on Monday evenings and perform mainly around the North West at public and private events, carnivals and festivals. Members also have the opportunity to perform with our sister bands throughout the UK and internationally.

We welcome new members each autumn. Visit to find out about our upcoming gigs, booking us or joining the band.
