  Batala Washington

Join our mailing list for info on performances & rehearsals!

The all-women Batala Washington percussion group started in June 2007 in Washington DC, and is part of the International Batala group that plays Afro-Brazilian / Samba-Reggae rhythms.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, all proceeds go towards providing instruments and costumes to members, all of whom are volunteers. Joining Batala is free of charge to all women regardless of race, religion, income, sexual orientation or musical experience; however, the purchase of the Batala Starter Kit is necessary.

We currently have 85 women in the band and are closed to new members at this time. Check our calendar for practice time and location and come see us.

    Batala is available for:
  • private parties
  • corporate parties
  • fund raisers
  • festivals
  • parades
  • workshops
And many other events in the DC, VA and MD areas. Check our Press Kit (pdf)
When: Every Saturday, from 10:00am to 1:00pm
Where: Check our calendar.

Please, be aware that we might change our rehearsal location due to performance, weather, etc. Be sure to check our calendar before coming.
