Round the Bays Fun Run 2021

An early start, for a great cause

This is our second time performing at Round the Bays, and once again it was a very early (7.45am!) start for this great community event. We resurrected our CubaDupa 2018 costumes (shhh don’t tell anyone, but this is my favourite ever Batucada outfit!) which meant we were colourful and eye-catching for the runners as they thundered past.

We played three 15-20 min sets between 7.45 and 9.30am – a set for each group of runners as they came past. I think we did quite a decent job – we had 14 inquiries about our beginners drumming and dance workshops in the days immediately following this gig. Not bad!
