Global brass band Orkestra del Sol will release a new album April 18th titled Lung Capacity. To celebrate the occasion, the band has released a music video short throughout the globe.
Orkestra del Sol is known for its explosive reinvention of global brass band music, incorporating diverse influences such as ska, porro, calypso, klezmer and funk. Trumpet, trombone, saxes, clarinet, accordion, 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 .
Orkestra del Sol’s riotous live shows are full of wit and imagination – bursting with anarchic humor, wildly skilful musical arrangements and a roguish sense of theatre.
The Edinburgh-based 9-piece kicked off 2011 with a 23-show tour of Australia at the end of January, including a high profile season at Sydney International Art Festival.
