BatukaVi Villeneuve

World percussion

Batucada is a musical genre based on traditional Brazilian percussion instruments, whose rhythmical structures make it a sub-genre of samba. BatukaVI is an ensemble of young musicians from Grenoble’s "secteur 6" (an area covering the Villeneuve-Village Olympique district). The aim, through musical practice, is to fight against preconceptions, to rehabilitate the image of these neighbourhoods, which are often stigmatized in the media, and increase the feeling of belonging to them among young people.
