You can find us throughout the San Francisco Bay Area bringing the infectious joy of drumming and dancing to charity walks and community events, educational institutions and corporate events, night clubs and private parties. 

On the stage or on the street, Batalá San Francisco drums ignite an irresistible joy in our audiences. Book us for your next event!
