The wonderful Samba Raggae drumming band 'Batala' were lucky enough to be selected to entertain the crowds and play at the World Cup friendly at Wembley last week - England v Peru.
Here are the Batala drummers playing outside Wembley to greet the fans!! Having been to watch them in action, I can tell you they make a fair bit of noise!
The lovely Olivia Simpson from Batala Bristol was keen to show off a Flash Floozy Floral Crown whilst performing in front of thousands that attended the match so I created a Batala themed commission piece so she would stand out from the crowd.
And although everyone looked amazing and played amazing, Olivia just pipped everyone to the post in the costume stakes with her unique Batala Flash Floozy Floral Crown!!
And for those of you that have never seen Batala perform, you can follow this link to Olivia's band Batala Bristol to see what they are all about. There are many Batala Drumming bands all over the world so who knows, you may get to see them soon!
