This new, energising show from Brazilian, charismatic multi-instrumentalist and composer Adriano Adewale and his team of talented musicians is a cross between a theatre show and a children’s sonic adventure of dreams.
Aimed at ages 5 and over (although younger ones will no doubt also find plenty to bring them joy) this musical journey hinges on the adventures of the curious and cheeky character Catapluf.
Catapluf’s limitless imagination explores music from across the world (including samba, jazz and klezmer) and encourages and inspires the audience to make music from unconventional things (erm …. most likely to be continued when home).
Expect to be uplifted through harmony and rhythm and inspired by Catapluf to think anything is possible and even the most unlikely of objects can be instruments and make glorious sound.
We love that shy, retiring types can sit back, listen, watch and enjoy while those who just can’t keep still can join in to create a wonderful world of rhythm, song and tune together.
Catapluf’s Musical Journey is part of the Big Imaginations Festival which brings 9 remarkable shows to 26 venues across the North West this autumn. You can see it at Z-arts on 21 October, Citadel St Helen’s on 22 October, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall on 23 October and Ellesmere Port Civic Hall on 2 November.
