Batala Durham
Batala Durham is the newest branch of Batala, an international samba reggae music project based in Salvador de Bahia in northeastern Brazil.

Batala was founded in Paris in 1997 by Giba Gonçalves, a Bahian percussionist with links to Ilê Aiyê, Olodum, Muzenza, Male Debale, Jimmy Cliff, Tupi Nago, and Kaoma. Batala currently has over 30 groups in 15 countries and a worldwide membership of over 1,000 percussionists.
