Orkestra Del Sol + Tantz + intO the mOOn
***Orkestra del Sol***
“The swagger of a Balkan wedding band; the riotous energy of Latin carnival!”
Orkestra del Sol’s explosive reinvention of global brass band music takes diverse influences – ska, porro, calypso, funk and a range of UK dance styles. They create a living, breathing polka-ing, pogo-ing honkstep for the 21st century. Trumpet, trombone, saxes, accordion, fiddle, two drummers and the epic bass of the sousaphone conspire perfectly to create soaring horn lines and beautifully layered harmonies, driven by an uncompromising rhythm section who deliver the meanest grooves with a twinkle in their eye!

***Into The Moon***
Gypsy violin driven rock sung with a cabaret flare.
An American country-boy lunatic with a big electric sound and anthems in his voice, a ravishing French violinist with a gypsy heart, and an seductively smashing drummer lure you into a musical dream sequence splattered with laughter and sparkled with spontaneous dissolution of dimensions.
