Biography

MacUmba are a group of eight musicians based in Scotland who mix the traditional sounds of Scottish bagpipes with the sounds and rhythms of Brazilian and Caribbean percussion.

They began as a batucada (or drumming group) which grew out of a series of drumming workshops held at the Glasgow School of Art. Subsequently, they added various combinations of flutes, guitars, bass, voices etc. to our batucada, and performed at many events throughout Scotland. About six years ago, they were asked to play at a football cup final, and added bagpipes to the batucada to be more in line with the football tradition of bagpipes and drums. This combination proved very popular, and since then they have played at many events and festivals all over Europe, in Japan, the USA, Cuba, and in Venezuela.
