What do you get if you mix the swagger of a Balkan wedding with the riotous energy of a Latin carnival? "Magnificent!" The Independent; "Utterly captivating" Songlines; "A mighty kick, a grunt of satisfaction and a healthy dose of humour" The Herald; "Anything as unashamedly fun as this should go a long way" The List; "You cannot take your eyes off these characters for a second" Three Weeks
International festival favourites Orkestra del Sol continue their explosive reinvention of the brass band format with a brand new show and album: Lung Capacity! Kicking rhythms underpin soaring horn lines, mournful melodies, rolling middle-eastern rhythms, Balkan Gypsy style trumpet solos, Latin spice and New Orleans sass - all expertly worked into a performance bursting with anarchic humour, wildly skilful musical arrangements and a roguish sense of theatre. For fans of bands such as Youngblood, Hot Eight, Dirty Dozen, Boban Markovic and Fanfare Ciocarlia, these Edinburgh blowers are a must-see, as they are for anyone who just loves a great live music party. Plus DJs Malaka (BalkanBeats) and Shefitza, the original Balkan girl, spinning high energy Balkan Beats and Gypsy Kicks!
