“If Jerry Dammers and Terry Hall had grown up listening to world music, The specials might have sounded very like the Baghdaddies.” — Uncut Magazine
The Baghdaddies’ exuberant and rampant brand of world music is an exhilarating cocktail of Balkan melodies, ska and latin grooves and sizzling brass played with furious energy and theatrical humour, making them as unforgettable on stage as they are when performing as wandering brass troubadours. They take themselves incredibly seriously so you don’t have to.
Horo Quintet are a group of musicians who love balkan and folk tunes and compositions from all over the world, especially Eastern Europe, Ireland, Britain, China, Japan and Africa. They develop and play original compositions and traditional tunes. The band is Will Glenn (fiddle), Jordan Smart (flute, saxophones), Pete O’Brien (accordion), Alex Elliot (percussion and drums), and Nick Smart (guitar and mandola).
