  • Description

    Brand new studio release by The Voodoo Love Orchestra. First possessed in Brighton in 2012 from a sea of Latin and Jazz sounds, this tribe have been channeling the spirits of their musical ancestors ever since. The likes of Jimi Hendrix, La Lupe, Fela Kuti, and Lucho Bermudez come alive through interpretations layered with brass, afro-latin rhythms, and most of all: a heavy hip-grinding feel. Harking back to the big band sound of 1960s Latin America via the back streets of New Orleans, welcome to the infectious, maverick and irresistibly swinging street music of VLO. Delving deep into the heart of the tropics, this globe-trotting ensemble straddles a whole range of pan-Atlantic sounds: Colombian Cumbia, Cuban Comparsa, New Orleans Jazz, Mississippi Blues, 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 sousaphone, trombone, trumpet, baritone sax, tenor sax, alto sax, clarinet, vocals, military drumcorps and latin percussion. Since its formation the ensemble has graced the halls of the Royal Festival Hall, got down and dirty with festival-goers at Secret Garden Party, entertained Russian oligarchs and everything in between!
