The Lemon Tree Lounge

Flamboyant, brassy and irresistibly euphoric - the riotous live shows of Edinburghs Orkestra del Sol are fast gaining them notoriety as Scotlands answer to the celebratory wedding bands of Eastern Europe. Blending the best of brass with the swinging sounds of New Orleans, the rolling rhythms of the Middle East or the bouncing beats of UK ska, they pack a punch and make mincemeat of musical categories. The band site influences including Balkan big names like Boban Markovic Orkestar, Mahala Rai Banda and Fanfare Ciocarlia, but also pay homage to Calypso and Mento, Brazilian Forro and Columbian Porro, plus The Specials, Tom Ze, Duke Ellington, Stephane Grapelli and Tom Waits.
