About this cause
Batida Rio is a new Samba percussion community group for Warrington. The goal of the organisation is to provide a socially inclusive activity that anyone can learn and enjoy regardless of age, skill or background. We aim to tackle social isolation with regular sessions and support mental health through skills development and the physical benefits of percussion and performance.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Since the start of lockdown, festivals, street events and group gatherings have all been cancelled, increasing isolation and damaging mental health. This community group will seek to bring the people of Warrington from all backgrounds together, to learn a new skill, socialise and enjoy creating live music. Batida Rio will be playing in the streets of Warrington for all to enjoy.
