The Notting Hill Carnival is an annual Caribbean festival event that has taken place in London since 1966. Having been cancelled for two years due to the covid rules, the biggest street party in Europe was back in August 2022 bringing millions of people back to the streets of London. This sequence of photographs about the Batala, a samba-reggae drumming band, forms a continuum between the pre-covid carnival, its absence during two lockdowns, and the long-awaited return of the festival.
