Balkan Brass Gypsy Carnival Band

These Balkan brass party-starters are a colourful explosion of flamboyant, high-octane performances and musical miscellany - a fearsome blend of brass, reeds, percussion, guitar and vocals.

They play riotous Balkan, Gypsy and Turkish tunes, up-tempo Russian drinking songs, and even upper-tempo Klezmer, with a hint of hiphop and Latin for good measure. Sometimes they write originals about cheese pies.

Highlights from the band's strange and wonderful history include shows at Glastonbury, Bestival, WOMAD,​ the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Palace, HMV Forum and The Roundhouse, as well as recording at Abbey Road and Air Studios.
