Having announced that this is to be the last year of Orkestra del Sol, the band is now setting about making the rest of 2017 one MIGHTY celebration! Join them for an evening of bombastic brass, big sousa bass, bad ass rhythms and red 'n' black bravado (you know the score). Plus a whole lot of album launch fun! Get your hands on their new album 2 weeks ahead of its release date - and be part of the Orkestra's big final fling!
Based in Scotland, but taking in musical influences from far and wide, Orkestra del Sol inflect their music with a raucous enthusiasm. Blending the best of brass with the swinging sounds of samba, New Orleans street music or the rolling rhythms of Turkey and the Middle East, they charge through it all with full-blooded rock and roll speed. They make mincemeat of musical categories.
The band cite influences including Balkan big names like Boban Markovic, Mahala Rai Banda and Fanfare Ciocarlia, but also pay homage to Calypso and Mento, The Specials, Tom Zé, Duke Ellington, Stephane Grapelli and Tom Waits as well as Elvis, Fats Waller and even a doff of the cap to Bollywood, Sevdah and Dubstep.
There’s a strong comedy element in play too, as evidenced by their Python/Gilliamesque album cover art and their high octane, thoroughly theatrical stage shows.
