CUBADUPA 2024

Tropicana Samba Superstars
Bay Batucada brings the vibrant rhythms of Brazil to life with their energetic street performances and the infectious beats of samba, reggae, and funk. Come join the party and experience Bay Batucada for yourself at Cubadupa!
Our theme for this year’s CubaDupa is Tropicana. Let our percussive beats transport you to a sun-drenched tropical paradise. Tropicana is more than just a performance; it’s a declaration of hope, resilience, and the transformative power of music. Let the rhythm carry you away and experience the unforgettable magic of Bay Batucada, as they celebrate a decade of drumming.

Sanctuary Sounds

We are looking ahead to the sunny Hawkes Bay summer we’ve all missed this past season, so this year’s theme is: ESCAPE TO SANCTUARY ISLAND!!

Think golden sand, palm trees, pina coladas and those little bamboo umbrellas in your drink! OH, and lots and lots of sunshine!
