101 Brass Band is set to perform Friday, November 10, 2017 at WOMAD Gran Canaria. The concert will take place at 7:00 pm on stage 2 at Parque de Santa Catalina in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
101 Brass Band was formed in La Orotava in northern Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain) in early 2014. The musicians were inspired by Balkan, South American and U.S. brass bands.
The band, known among its numerous followers as “La 101”, owes its name to a well-known and busy bus line in northern Tenerife that connects the capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife with Puerto de la Cruz, stopping in all towns.
