A 4 year drumming project working with vulnerable children in Kinship Care.

We turned ourselves into an Afro-Brazilian Street Band playing a fusion of Brazilian carnival & Orixa styles

We performed our evolving set of music to a packed Musselburgh Brunton Hall (500+ people) 3 years in a row as part of the National Youth Choir of Scotland events. Regular workshops led to several performances including  the Scotland National Conference of Kinship Care and 4 Christmas Kinship Care parties.

The project now continues to evolve since my move to Bristol, under the expert creative guidance of Oi Musica and Where'stheone?


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience, understanding, commitment & skills in developing the young peoples confidence & musical ability. The young people really enjoyed working with you & gained so much out of their performances, we will all miss you.

Pete, you have done a great job working with the children and the fact that that they were keen to do a performance was testament to your encouragement and confidence building.
Very many thanks for all the effort in making the children feel special.
