"brass-bound lunacy" The Scotsman

"anything as unashamedly fun as this should go a long way" The List

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!

Orkestra del Sol's riotous live shows are brimming with wit and imagination - bursting with anarchic humour, wildly skilful musical arrangements and a roguish sense of theatre. 8 years' experience of performing together has honed Orkestra del Sol's confidently original style. They have charmed audiences all over Europe and Australia as well as at festivals in India, and China.
