Voodoo Love Orchestra – Thriller

Posted on 30 December 2012 by Andrés

The Voodoo Love Orchestra comes form Brighton, UK and is a Latino Brass Band. Harking back to the big band sound of 1960s Latin America and Africa, the infectious, maverick and irresistibly swinging street music of VOODOO LOVE ORCHESTRA will have the crowd baying for more. This is more an invasion than a performance, with a euphoric riot of musicians weaving in and out of the throng, overseen by a megaphone-wielding High Priestess invoking the spirits of celebration.

Delving deep into the heart of the tropics, this globe-trotting ensemble straddles a whole range of pan-Atlantic sounds: Colombian Cumbia, Cuban Comparsa, Nigerian Afrobeat, Jamaican Ska and Ghanaian Highlife.

The musical melange of relentlessly syncopated beats and squealing trumpets is an abundantly joyous salute to the roots of carnival, with a line up of helicon, tuba, euphonium, trombone, baritone sax, tenor sax, alto sax, soprano sax, clarinet, guitar, vocals, military drumcorps and latin percussion.
