Our History


Batala Houston is an all-volunteer Afro-Brazilian percussion group playing Bahian rhythms of Samba Reggae, Afoxé, and Afro Samba.

The group began rehearsing in January 2013 and currently has 15 members. Aside from 3 people with professional percussion experience, all other members learned how to play their parts from scratch once they joined Batala.
